All the Realistic figures. They did a great job on all the wax figures and I love the back story of the people who I didn’t know so I could become familiar with them.

While smaller in square footage, the rooms are very well designed. The wax figures are impressively life like. And the staff is friendly and informative.

We visited the old location years ago and were not too impressed.They've clearly put time and money into the new building, because this time we were absolutely blown away! The models are so life-like that it's a little uncomfortable. The displays are carefully-considered. They really do a lot with a small space.We also appreciated the little details. The "house of horrors" is separated by a curtain. It's nothing you wouldn't see in a campy B-movie, but for parents with small children (or people who just choose not to see that stuff), the option/warning is welcome.Staff members were kind and courteous. They would offer information and assistance if wanted, but were also aware of other patrons who wished to be let alone.We were pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness of the restrooms. There is also a workshop on site, where you can get a glimpse of how the models are made.We certainly recommend including this in your St. Augustine travels, and will definitely be back.You could easily walk here (we did) - down St. George Street and take a left onto Orange. It's right across from the visitor's center, and next to the trolley station.

Loved this! What a cool, creative way to get kids (and adults) to get into learning about history! It was so neat to see good guys and bad guys from our past “in real life!”

This place exceeded my expectations. The history behind the Museum, the couple that was running the Museum and the well-thought-out displays of the figures was exceptional. It was a fun but also educational and eye-opening experience. History and fun facts all over the Museum accompany the figures.

We stopped by on our last day at St. Augustine and enjoyed this wax museum. Many figures look almost life like. My family enjoyed it very much as it had a mixture of movie/tv characters and historical figures. Definitely recommend.

Very lifelike figures. The bar keeper in particular looked quite ready to sell us a drink. Figures were sometimes grouped by event or activity. For instance, WWII generals or writers. Some were on their own, such as one of Brittany Spears. Information provided for all figures. Very informative. The costumes for the original figures were made by royal costumers. These alone were said to be very valuable. Figures are being added. Had a horror chamber for those not faint in heart. Highly recommended.

You can’t beat this experience for the price. Sure it’s cool to see wax figures - and some of them look so eerily real, I stared back for a very long time expecting a blink - but PWM is also a walking history lesson about every character’s contribution to life and how they died. There are also so many nods to the local history, it’s easy to see why folks flock to the First Coast. From Ponte de Leon to the Creature from the Black Lagoon (both Floridians, in case you didn’t know), Potter’s has it all. On a side note, my macabre sense of entertainment was fulfilled reading about all of Henry VIII’s wives. Spoiler alert, they were not all beheaded!

This was so much fun! I think this may have been the best part of my visit. The staff was great! I enjoyed all the wax people! It's so cool how much they really look like the real people! I most definitely will be back!

It was out last day here and I suggested to my wife to check this out. Glad we did. Was very cool to see all the wax figures and read a short bio about them. Was Quite a lot to see and also got to see the process involved in making them. The young lady at the front counter was very friendly and nice and funny as well. Was nice chatting with her.
