I really had a great time visiting with Nick. I think that is the real highlight. There are great movie and Hollywood artifacts there. I had a great time learning about the Star Wars film work, Nick's work on Highlander, and several other films. We really enjoyed seeing his collections of life masks,
The real fun in the visit is having time to talk with Nick about his experiences on film. He is a delightful man with many entertaining stories. You know that he must have told them 100 times before. But I really did feel that he was telling me for the first time. He is a great storyteller.
I know some are upset that his better artifacts (including the full Darth Vader, Emperor and other costumes) are only available with a purchase. I fully understand. He is trying to build a museum with independent financing. This is not an easy task...even with cruise ships coming to town every day.
Do yourself a favor. Get some great Belgian chocolate up the street and then go in and buy a piece of Nick's artwork and take in the whole experience. I'm still grinning several days later!
