Great way to spend 45 minutes

This is a great place to cool off in some A/C, spend about 45 minutes or kill some time if needed. Many different wax figures that look real! Great craftmanship. They also... read more

This is a great place to cool off in some A/C, spend about 45 minutes or kill some time if needed. Many different wax figures that look real! Great craftmanship. They also allow you to take as many photos as you wish. My favorite was Freddy Krueger. You can read about many of the people that the figures represent as... More

Very neat place some of the wax figures are very old and it shows but over all lots of history in it too. Not very expensive to visit and if you get a guide and coupon book you can get 3 dollars off.

This museum is very unique and quite overwhelming! I felt like a kid again and took so many pictures!! One lady who works there, Linda, was especially awesome and had so many great stories to tell about working there :)

Most of them did not look realistic, and quite run-down. However, this is the first wax museum, so it makes sense that they look that way because they are so old, and located in the original pharmacy which is also way old so I'm thinking that the elements may have seeped into the building over the years? Anyway, the historical... More

This is worth it if you buy the discounted ticket package with the Trolley. Small and short activity. We had never been to a wax museum and we were fascinated ! All the wax figures are historical figures that my kids had no idea who they were so that's why i would say it was worth it with the discounted... More

I visited the Potter's Wax Museum and my family and I were amazed with the figures, we really loved the scientists exhibit and the Elvis Presley figure. We felt great having this young lady Sam, talking to us in Spanish and explaining the exhibits, we felt very welcome and like we were at home. I really recommend this place also... More

Fun place to visit, lots of different caracters although some looked more authentic than others, loved the hidden questions throughout the place and the fact that the museum is located in an old building gives it a little scary touch.

I wouldn't recommend going to this place unless it was included in your trolley package. The wax figures didn't look like they were in good shape. Icing on the cake was the guide, Sam, who had her guy friends/ date come visit her at work. They sat around the WWII section and acted rambunctious. Obviously fooling around on their cell... More

Pretty cool stop. Figures look so real you almost wait for them to blink! Lots of history here and some pop culture mixed in too.
