Visited the wax museum on the April 11th 2015. Took the family which includes 4 small children. They found something that excited them. Even the adults wanted pictures with a wax figure or two. Many figures that span centuries.

This wasn't the highlight of my trip to St. Augustine, but I can't give it a bad review. It was just fine. It's probably a good place to visit if it's raining and you want to stay dry. If I could make a recommendation to the museum, I would say that they should have an artist at work explaining the... More

Kids are between the ages of 9 and 14 and they really loved this. The lady gave us a deal. Not sure if we would have gone in otherwise. The figures are life size and of course, some are better than others. But it is actually a good history lesson for the kids. I particularly enjoyed that it said how... More

Worth the price with a discount, but would have been disappointed if we had paid full price. Staff was very friendly :)

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
