A part of the Ghost Tour, the Wax Museum is spooky at night. All of the lights are off and they have a demonstration of the museum's garrote. A member of the tour was asked to assist in the demonstration and that made the tour all the more fun. the actor playing the executioner was very knowledgeable and was quite... More

This was a very cool place to visit to see all the wax carvings of different people. Our family had a blast! You can also see some of the carvers working on new sculptures. It's a must see!

Is there anywhere else on earth where Al Capone, Jerry Seinfeld, Austin Powers, Adolf Hitler, George W. Bush, and Elvis Presley share a home aside from Potter's Wax Museum? This was my third time. On the second, there were actually artists working on faces in their open-door studio for all to see, which was fascinating stuff. This time around, I... More

We visited the museum with our kids. My favorite collection was the Tudor and his queens. Kids enjoyed taking pictures with other celebrities. Great place when its too hot or raining outside.

This was a fun air conditioned stop. We took some photos and just read all the stuff with all the wax figures. Fun for kids.

To be fair I have a bias towards wax museums ever since a little kid. They moved from there downtown location to a place over by the fort and it's a much better location and facility. It had nice cold AC which was awesome since it was so hot out. I've been to several of the Madame Tussauds museums and... More

My parents took me to St.Augustine every year for vacation since I was ten, but we never went to the wax museum.My parents thought it was good enough to stroll by and look at the wax figurines displayed in the museum's windows( when it was located by the seawall in downtown St.Augustine.) Finally, I took my family to the smaller... More

We met a lot of people today! People that we never would have had the chance anywhere else! I have always wanted to visit The Wax Museum and finally got my chance this past weekend. It was the exhibit that I enjoyed the most. The figures were so realistic, I felt like I was back in history. We throughly enjoyed... More

This is a really fun and interesting place.The staff were super nice and friendly and went out of their way to help a terrified 5 year old that was with our group. We thought she would enjoy it but she didn't. The staff took extra time to show her what the wax figures were made out of and even gave... More
