What a wonderful museum! So organized and realistic! Staff is very knowledgeable and provides many interesting facts. You can take your time and enjoy every facet of American history and/or celebrities. Worth every penny!

Cute little place. It was nice to see the figures and cool down. Staff was very friendly and it was not expensive at all.

It's cool getting to see the wax statues of so many famous and historical figures. Not a bad place to hang out for a while.

The Potters Wax Museum was one of my favorite things in St. Augustine. Especially enjoyed how there was informational items about each of the wax figures.
