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 was in the area, I had to go. It was something to kill time. I... More

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.
