This has been on my “must see and do list” for a very long time and I finally made the visit. On line the business looks HUGE, when in reality, it’s 1 room and a gift store. For $3.00 ($2.00 65 and over) you can...More

Fun. Nice tour guide. Lots of old toys. Small but kitchy fun. Easy to park. Right at base if Burlingame Avenue.

this is a one room museum that is dedicated to Pez dispensers, Nothing to see if you are not a fan of Pez. The visit took me 10 minutes to see everything

This is a fun and funky little museum of Pez memorabilia. It's well worth the $3 admission for a fun look back at some childhood favorites, I would definitely recommend it :)

I went here with relatively low expectations, because come on...how much could there be to look at? But it was actually pretty cool! The man who runs the place gives a tour with your admission ticket (I think that was $4) to the museum that...More

I'm not sure I would call this a museum. It literally is 1 room for goods being sold and another room displaying all the PEZ and other interesting toys. I must say I enjoyed the little "tour" the owner gives you. I figured since I...More
