According to the UK Independent, film director Guillermo Del Toro has quite a large collection of movie memorabilia.

"Speaking to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Del Toro said Bleak House contains up to 9,000 books, 50,000 magazines and comics, 580 original artworks and “thousands upon thousands” of toys and collectibles. “I have secret passages behind bookshelves. I have a room where it rains all day. At 51, I live the life of a well-financed 12-year-old,” he said."

Some 500 pieces of this collection are to be exhibited world wide, starting in Los Angeles at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Unfortunately, I can't find anything about it on their website.

"After leaving LA in November it will move on to Minneapolis, Toronto, Mexico City, Barcelona, Paris and finally New York."

Del Toro wrote a book about his collection and his filmmaking process

There is a short blurb on the LACMA website:

But then click on the link and download the PDF. A much better description awaits.
