St. Augustine: Potter's Wax Museum Ticket

Discover America's first wax museum located in the heart of historic St. Augustine, Florida. This wax museum offers guests the ability to interact with over 160 wax figures, ranging from Hollywood A-listers to individuals who have shaped national history. The inspiration behind Potter's Wax Museum came from a childhood trip to London taken by founder, George L. Potter. As a child, he was mesmerized by the life like figures and wanted to share his enjoyment with the American public. In 1947, Potter began contracting with GEMS of London, a noted wax studio, to create one of a kind figures for his museum. Potter employed artists from all over Europe to aide in this project with the wax imported from France, hair from Italy, and the sculpting taking place in Belgium. Opening it's doors in 1949, Potter's Wax Museum has served as an interactive, educational and fun attraction for visitors to the ancient city.

I really enjoyed the trolley. The gentleman at the ticket booth was extremely helpful. He saw I was stressed over not being able to find my tickets and he approached me to help and we got it figured out. Preacher was an excellent tour guide! We rode the trolley all the way through and then got off at stops we were interested in the 2nd time around. We could have never seen the historic district in one day on our own!

Great way to tour the city! The first day, we rode an d made notes of the attractions we wanted to see. The second day, we hopped on and off while visiting them. The tour guides were all knowledgeable about the history and we learned a lot.

This was actually a lot of fun. We didn't see any ghosts unfortunately, but still loved the whole experience. 10 PM was a perfect time, it was dark enough, but not too late.

The trolley train drivers were very knowledgeable of St Augustine history and the station employees were friendly and helpful. The wait time between pick up was minimal.

Our guides were very knowledgeable, extremely friendly, funny. & helpful. I will definitely recommend to family & friends who are coming to St Augustine!
