This is my 5th time in St Augustine but my 1st in Potter's. Out of all the attractions in the old city, this one packs the most value. There are a lot of historical figures from the past, including our favorite Tudor era King Henry Viii and his wives. Lots for everyone to see! Highly recommended!!

Had a lot of historical figures some main stream. Stroll only took about 10 minutes but you get out of the blazing heat. Was my second time through it so I would definitely go again.

Our children love this place! They want to tour it every summer. The self-guided tour has a variety of historical figures such as Marie Antoinette, Joan of Arc, and the wives of King Henry VIII. One section has many of the Presidents of the United States as well as the "founding fathers." The figures are very lifelike in appearance and... More

It was a really nice place to visit. I liked that it had more historical figures, unlike some wax museums that only seem to have celebrities. Employees were really friendly. There was a sculptor working on making a piece. He was nice and answered questions about the wax process. Overall, it was very enjoyable and I would recommend visiting.

A rain storm came through and we decided to check out the wax museum. Enjoyed seeing all the historical figures and the kids got a kick out of it too. Recommended for something a little different when you want to get out of the heat for a bit.

Potter's Wax Museum has had at least three homes in St. Augustine that I remember but it hasn't lost its power to entertain and engage visitors. In fact, in its location in an old and historic drug store on the corner of Orange and Cordova Streets, a visitor can get quite cozy with the wax figures. For some,,it may be... More

Very Cool. A lot of the wax people look very real. Lots of history to wonder through. Really enjoyed the tour through this museum. The staff were very friendly. They introduce you into the experience then they just let you wonder through on your own. We really liked this because it gave us time to take things in on our... More
