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.

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.
