It's great to see someone who has turned an obsession into a business. I remember pez from the 1950s. i'm not a collector but I have a friend who is; I bought her some samples (she may already have them). The curator/owner also has collections of Mr. Potato Head, tinker toys, Lincoln logs, erector sets, frisbies, etc. and all the... More

I have driven past this spot a million times and wondered if it was for real or not. So, one day after I finished having my amazing facial of my entire life with Sonbol at Burlingame Skin Care (just a couple blocks walk away inside--inside Peninsula Beauty Supply, I decided to investigate the Pez Museum for myself. Of course I... More

The name of the place say it all - if want to see Pez dispensers, this is the place. Not a large display space, but the curator is well versed in the history of the dispensers and other memorabilia. Work a stop for the pop culture history lesson. Includes a gift shop with a wide variety of Pez dispensers. An... More

How many times a week can you say that! I finally had time to actually go into the Museum part of the PEZ Museum this past week. It is a HOOT! Small, cheap, amusing, won't take a good chunk of your day and a reason to stop in Burlingame! One Half of the museum is a PEZ Store, take your... More

Been here twice, and would go back each time to support it. We need more places like this! Don't need a long visit, but it's inexpensive and you'll get a personal tour by the owner. If you know your Pez, you'll realize they have some of the rarest dispensers in existence. This was a dream come true for me -... More

It had been my friend's life-long dream to go the Burlingame Museum of Pez Memorabilia, so we stopped on our way back from SFO. The building actually holds three museums in one: the Burlingame Museum of Pez Memorabilia, the Classic Toys Museum, and the Banned Toys Museum. It's smaller than you would think, consisting of one man's Pez collection in... More

$3 & $1-kids is entrance to see original Lego, Pez and banned toys. What a minifigure find, there were so many old ones, just like the Legoland hotel displays. The plus here is it was less than $5.00 to create your own minifigure! This made my son so happy. Great day they had with grandma there. Be sure to walk... More
