You need to have the time to look and enjoy. Went with my girlfriend and she was impressed, so that means I was impressed. But you need to take the time really

I was visiting friends in Burlingame and was excited about the opportunity to visit the Pez Museum, which I learned about many years ago. I used to be an active Pez collector and I think I've even purchased Pez form the museum. But with respect to the owner/operators, I was so very disappointed with the experience. First off, it's not... 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...

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 guarantee you will learn something about Pez that you didn't know before. This place is great if you are looking to kill 30... More

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.
