Potter’s Wax Museum: History is Just Around The Corner

st augustine potters wax museum

Potter’s Wax Museum, located inside the Old Drugstore in St. Augustine’s historic district, is America’s first and oldest wax museum. It’s a place to have fun while learning about history and culture through the people who made it.

Opened in 1948 by George Potter who was inspired to create his own wax sculptures in America while visiting a museum in London as a child, it is now home to more than 145 wax figures.  The A-list of celebrities, sports stars, dignitaries, politicians, entertainers, musicians, artists, writers, scientists, inventors, royal families, U. S. Presidents and fictional characters is long. The remarkable likeness to the characters the wax figures represent is due to the intricate process used to create them.
