America’s Oldest Wax Museum with The Carpetbagger and!

America’s oldest wax museum opened in 1949! For those who admire superior craftsmanship and photo-realistic art, a stop at Potter’s Wax Museum, St. Augustine Florida, is not something to be missed. George L. Potter, the museum’s founder, was fascinated by the painstaking accuracy and exquisite detail of the wax figures he encountered when on holiday in London when he was a boy. With this inspiration in his heart, Potter set out to preserve the likenesses of great American leaders and statesmen for posterity and proceeded to procure the very best wax from France, the finest hair from Italy and the most highly skilled artisans to give shape and form to it all. Belgium was where the first production facility was located and the first run of wax figures found their way to what would become Potter’s Wax Museum back in 1949.
