Potter's Wax Museum: Potter’s Wax Museum is located on Orange Avenue in historic St. Augustine and offers visitors a unique opportunity to see some of the world’s most famous people up close. America’s first and oldest wax museum, it was founded by George Potter, a man who traveled around the world as a young child with his family.
It was during one of his many trips that Potter visited a London wax museum and became inspired to create his own wax sculptures in America. Potter’s opened in 1948 and is home to more than 145 wax figures including celebrities, sports stars, dignitaries, politicians, entertainers, historical people and more. You’ll stand next to Harry Potter, his friends Hermione and Ron and his mortal enemy, Voldemort. You’ll see Presidents Abraham Lincoln and George Washington, John Adams and others. Benjamin Franklin, Cleopatra, Ponce de Leon and Elvis are also here - along with Annie Oakley and Davy Crockett. Imagine looking Michael Jordan in the eyes and getting your picture taken next to Henry the VIII and all of his wives.
