Tiny place with lots if info

I wouldn't drive out of your away to this place but, if you are in the area it's worth a quick stop. I learned so much from the man that worker there.

My wife & i found the owner of the Burlingame Museum of PEZ Memorabilia to be very engaging as he described his collection that has resulted from his passion for PEZ. In addition, he provides in his back room museum interesting and educational displays regarding historical items of youthful enthusiasm including Lincoln Logs, Erector Sets, Tinker Toys, and Colorforms.

This is a small store front with Pez and Lego for sale. The owner has collected at least one of every Pez Dispenser ever sold. He also has many dispensers for sale. The museum is a small back room where he will give you an overview of the history of Pez and the many dispensers he has collected. He also... More

This museum is so much fun for a quick and easy adventure! The owner made a museum out of his collection for the public to view which is genius. It's great that these Pez (and other toys) have been preserved.

It does not take long to explore this one-room museum, but this is certainly a great stop. The guided tour takes 10-15 minutes and you can buy a Pez souvenir on your way out.

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
