NEW YORK, Feb. 20 (UPI) -- A New York man said the museum he created in his apartment to honor 1988 film "Beetlejuice" has more than 75 pieces.

Bruce Christensen, 48, said his Hell's Kitchen apartment contains items including plastic toys, bobblehead dolls, trading cards, a beach towel, a full copy of the movie script and even a six-pack of wine coolers called Dr. Thirsty's Beetlejuice Alcoholic Fruit Crush, the New York Daily News reported Monday.

"This is definitely one of the top 10 attractions in New York City," said Christensen, who said more than 200 people have toured the "Bruce & His Beetlejuice Collection" museum since he opened just before Halloween.

"The absolute highlight of our recent trip to New York City was the private viewing of the Beetlejuice Museum," tourist Melodee Hill of Maryland told the Daily News.

Christensen said he would love to have director Tim Burton or some of the film's stars tour his collection, but he joked about being wary of Winona Ryder.

"I'd have to keep an eye on that klepto!" he quipped.
