from Potter's Wax Museum
America's first wax museum, Potter's, has been delighting guests since 1949. Potter's Wax Museum hosts one of the most unique collections of wax figures of celebrities, sports stars, people in the news, and modern-day historic figures. George L. Potter contracted with GEMS of London, a noted wax studio, to create original one-of-a-kind figures for his museum. Artists and craftsmen spent a great deal of time researching the process before creating these incredibly lifelike figures. Each part of the figure is custom-tailored using real hair and placed onto the figure a single strand at a time. Even the costumes are designed by one of the greatest in the industry.

Stand next to Tiger Woods, Captain Jack Sparrow, Elvis, and Harry Potter. Take your picture with Angelina Jolie, Michael Jordan, and Britney Spears. See Princess Diana, Ponce de Leon, and many of Potter's original figures. The collections were created in 1947 and 1948, making them some of the oldest and most valuable collections in the United States.

Get face-to-face with some of the world’s most famous and prominent people. A visit to Potter’s Wax Museum provides an up close and personal look at nearly 170 different wax sculptures of presidents, kings, explorers, movie stars, artists, authors, and more. The life-size wax figures are astoundingly real-looking and as you tour through, you can learn interesting facts about the people you are viewing. Potter’s Wax Museum has been captivating guests for 50 years and is the first museum of its kind in Florida.

Experience this unique museum of Potter's original collection and the newer, most recent figures from Hollywood's most elite entertainers.
