Lots of wax statues to see here. The details are incredible and these are true to size figures. Great for older children and adults.

Many of the wax figures didn't look like the real person. Not handicap accessible as had large step to get into the building. Young children will love the figures.

We had a coupon for $3 off, but the admission is only $10 normally. It isn't overly large, but the squeeze a lot of exhibits into the space available. There are a variety of subjects and it is both educational and entertaining. I recommend visiting.

You first enter in to an old drug store, which for me, was very interesting. Most of the wax figures were very real to life, while others, not so much. There were a lot of "people" to see, of all eras. The costumes were beautiful. While told all were real to life in size, I had some difficulty in believing... More

We picked this as part of our tour package with Old Town Trolley. One of our kids wanted to see it. The wax figures aren't that life like. The coolest thing was reading the card about the person and how they died.

I was skeptical of paying for this due to it appearing quite small. My wife talked me into it and I'm glad we did. The teenagers loved it and so did the 11 year old girl. There are quite a few people in here and the whole thing was quite fun!

Potter's Wax Museum moved from it's previous location which was close to the Bay. I hadn't been there in probably 20 years or so and loved seeing the old wax figures again. There were a few new ones from Star Wars that have been added too and some that seemed to be missing. The old chamber of horrors wasn't very... More

I have visited here twice and both times enjoyed my visit with my family. I really liked how they would demonstrate exactly how they make the heads for their wax mannequins. Hilarious photo opportunities. Should definitely see at least once with family.
