The wax museum was very interesting. We enjoyed the gentleman working on a new bust for the museum. Seeing historical figures as they look in life was truly a treat.

A very interesting place to visit. Most of the figures looked real but a few could have been more realistic. There are plaques on the figures that tell you a little about the person which was beneficial. Well worth the $10. for admission

We were enthralled with the true to life likenesses of the figures. Also, staff were available to answer questions. It was a little eerie, but lots of fun. Only disappointment was no wax figure of John Wayne!

Loved the historical figures and more recent people in history, Wish they had a bigger building to showcase even more figures. Loved Britney Spears and the Star Wars figures.

Stopped in here because it was hot and they were air conditioned!! What a neat place! We had too much fun taking selfies and reading the stories of the figures. Cheap affordable fun for everyone.

While we did have fun the wax figurines are not done well, but others are done acceptably. Princess Diana was unrecognizable without the sign I would never have known. It was fun for the 20 mins we were there but would not waste my money or suggest it to others.

A trip to Potter's is also a must see while in St. Augustine. If you've never been to a wax-museum, you're in for a treat. Potter had been to Madam Tussaud's in London, and wanted to create such a museum here. His was the first of its kind in the US. All of the creations are very detailed, and all... More

Famous celebrities and historical people are life size and on display in this most interesting wax museum. The celebs and historical figures are very compelling and their costumes and accessories are true to the time period in which they are depicted. The majority of figures have detailed descriptions. Potter's is absolutely the finest wax museum that I have visited and... More

Definitely worth the trip! Buy a combo ticket and see several museums for one low price. Take the trolley!
