About this St. Augustine, Florida tour
The Potter collection of wax figures is one of the finest in the world. You'll see many one-of-a-kind figures produced by the esteemed GEMS wax studio in London. Every creation is custom-made with surprisingly lifelike touches, including real hair applied one follicle at a time and hand-tailored wardrobes.
Stop by and do some time traveling. Say cheese standing next to Michelangelo and Albert Einstein, William Shakespeare, Kramer, Yoda and C3PO, Henry VIII, Cleopatra, Princess Diana, Ponce de Leon, Marilyn Monroe, Jackie O, and countless others.
Originally called Potter's International Hall of Fame, and inspired by visits to Madame Tussauds in London, George Potter launched this local landmark in 1947, and it was run by his family until 1986. Today, after a move to historic St. George Street and several renovations, Potter's Wax Museum is a quirky and beloved St. Augustine institution.
He stunk as a king
Wax museums go back to royal funerals during the Middle Ages, when it was customary to carry the fully dressed corpse on top of the coffin. If the deceased royal had unwisely chosen to die (or be executed) during a summer heat wave, the stench of decay could turn public grief into widespread nausea. The solution was wax likenesses of the head and hands, with the imaginary physique covered by clothing.
