I really enjoyed my first visit about 5 years ago. This weekend we decided to take our kids to Potters. The 4 year old was so spooked he wanted to leave asap. The 16 year old enjoyed. They also have a little machine that plays old movies (very short) for $.50 i believe. Also if you visit the visitor center... More

Take an hour or more out of your day and visit this place. There are atleast 150 wax figures and an actual artist there molding a figure. When looking around the 2 must do tips are. Do not use your flash on camera or cell phone as the light reflects off figures and they look real fake. The next thing... More

We live close to St. Augustine and love to visit the city when we can, but this past week we made our 1st visit to the wax museum. We are extremely happy we did. We have 2 children 13 year old girl and 10 year old son; they had the best time. The customer service was outta this world, so... More

It was much more than we expected. Lots of history here. Not just the usual presidents and celebrities, but great composers, early settlers in Florida, even Abraham from the Bible and Cleopatra!!! It is a well done wax museum, worth your time to visit.

This is by far the best wax museum I've ever been to and I've been in a half a dozen all over the country. Some of these reviews are really unfair and strange to me even. For me this wax museum was better than the typical celebrity dominated wax museums that I've been bored to tears with in the past.... More

This wax museum is very nice but small display. We had fun and took pictures with the characters. I had three teenagers with me and they found it to be nice but " let's not linger "I was told. The price was reasonable and and the location is good, where you can walk to other historical sites,shopping and eateries.

Our family really enjoyed this museum. It was great to walk around with all the historical characters. I just wish they had more famous people of the present!

I thought the display they had here was interesting and fairly well done. It took you through the entire history of the U.S, and included several notable international figures that were very interesting to learn about and see. But I was disappointed in how small it was and how quickly we were able to walk through it. Maybe it would... More
