This is advertised as three museums in one! Old toys, Pez, and Bad Toys. It literally is one room. The Old Toys and Bad Toys are one display case each. You do get a "guided tour" where they explain each case and a little trivia about the items. It's small, and along a small strip of normal street stores. But... More

My husband is a collector of Pez dispensers and we visit this museum each time we visit Burlingame. The variety and quirkiness of the Pez museum is a lot of fun. Brings back a lot of memories just to step foot in the place. Having a picture taken with the gigantic Pez makes it all worth while!

As other reviews have indicated, it's just two small rooms with a gift shop in the front and some PEZ's in the back, along with a few dangerous, recalled toys. The PEZ's seen on the website are essentially the entire collection.. Can't say there were any PEZ's that were surprises or too bizarre or weird. I actually think I have... More

I paid a quick visit to this tiny museum. Love the giant PEZ greeting customers in front of store. Lots of PEZ memorabilia. The place is not very big but it was still a fun place to visit when in Burlingame.

I visited the PEZ museum with my family in June 2013. It's small but packed with a lot of PEZ, and worth a visit if in the area. The PEZ museum is basically two rooms, the front is the gift shop/PEZ dispenser shop, and the back is the museum. To go into the museum the cost is $3 for adults... More

This museum was a great surprise to find. The museum is located just down the road from the San Francisco airport. I wasn't in San Francisco for this reason but found enough time to pop over to the museum. If you like Pez you will love it. The owner has many new and previous pez for sale. The museum portion...

Calling this a museum might be stretching it a bit and it's really two small rooms with a bunch of PEZ dispensers and paraphenalia, but the place is quaint and unique, and the gentleman who runs the place was extremely nice and passionate about his collection. We live in Austria and the fact that PEZ is an Austrian company added... More

I had a little time to kill and saw the museum's flyer in the hotel's display. Short drive to Burlingame and I found street parking in front. Put enough quarters in for 1 hr and went in museum's storefront. Gift shop had variety of pez. I paid the $3 which included a "narrated tour". We moved to a room next... More

Located on a street front, row of shops. There is free - two hour - parking on the street directly behind the building (and the train tracks.) Museum/Gift Shop consists of just two small rooms. First room is gift shop with tons of Pez both current and retired available for purchase. If you want to go into the second room,... More
