It cost alot to visit and it wasn't a big place it should've had more sculptures or like animated figures that talked about their life or What they did in history so it was more entertaining.

Fun for the whole family. The wax figures are very life like and the attention to detail is impressive. I feel like the museum should be better organized and easier to follow.

My family and I stumbled upon Potter's Wax Museum this past weekend while walking around St. Augustine for the day. My daughter's really wanted to go inside so I paid the $34 for the family to enter and was pleasantly surprised with the variety of wax figures, including Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, Michael Jordan, many U.S. presidents and other historical...

Getting to see how they are made was a plus. There is an onsite crafting room for the figures. Since I'm a SciFi guy, you MUST go see the Star Wars exhibit. I also loved the xenomorph from Alien franchise. Freddy Kruger was good too. I do enjoy a good history lesson, so seeing some figures who made America great... More

One of the people I was with wanted to visit this site, but we were all pretty disappointed with this museum, especially for the price of the admission. The wax figures were only average at best. Some of them did not resemble the characters at all while others were "waxy" and not life-like as in some other wax museums we... More

They have 160+ figures here to see, all well made. The parking is herendous though, free parking can be found in the side streets behind here if you apply yourself a little.

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
