If you like Pez, and even if you don't, this place is fascinating

Don't expect a big museum, or a long wait. This place is pretty small (the store is out front), the museum just a big room in the back. But they have tons of Pez dispensers, and I... read more

Located at Burlingame, we stopped here on our way from SF to Monterey. Found a parking space right away (coin operated), entry was 6$ for both of us. This is a tiny place that holds a huge amount of PEZ treasures and old discontinued distribution toys. Nice exhibition display and very well organized. Garry, the museum owner and operator was...

This one room masterpiece of a museum has one of every pez dispenser ever made. You can see Star Wars pez dispensers signed by the cast from the original movie. There is a 7 ft tall pez dispenser, models of the oldest pez dispensers, and my favorite... a whole section of toys that have been yanked off the shelf (eg.... More

A special, unique, and fun place that is easily accessible. They will share the story of Pez while being able to show the community things that are familiar and a path do memory row. The items they sell are hard to find and worth sending to friends and family. What a great place. Stop by!

Not a large place but interesting if you are into the off beat. Cheap but interesting and totally different. The owner gives a tour as price of admission and the price is cheap and you can park right in front on the street. The kids can get rewarded by getting a Pez for a reasonable price and the parents can... More

More like a small shop than a museum, but of special interest to Pez collectors. Some old-time toys etc. which were fun to see.

Have gone to the museum once and do not understand how this place stays open. Pez are a unique item in society and I never see people inside when I drive past it. There is nothing that I saw that made me want to return. If you love Pez this is the place for you.

If you're looking for something quirky to do, this place is it. Cost is low, quirky-factor is high. Fun with kids or maybe even a date. You can power through this place quickly; but I highly recommend taking your time and checking this place out thoroughly. Bring some extra cash to buy a few new Pez dispensers as souvenirs. Easy...

This place is an amazing collection of PEZ memorabilia. It is small though, so treat it like a curiosity shop. You will probably be in and out pretty quickly. But if you are passing buy, it is worth a couple minutes to remind those of a certain age of our childhood.
