Burlingame, California, is Home to What Unique Museum

Burlingame Museum of Pez Memorabilia

The Burlingame Museum of Pez Memorabilia, located in Burlingame, California, opened in 1995 and is run by Gary Doss, who had been collecting Pez dispensers for more than a decade. The museum claims to have an example of every Pez dispenser ever sold. Doss initially ran a computer store and displayed some of their dispensers in the store, when they discovered that customers were more interested in the dispensers than in the computers.

In 2004, the museum expanded and added the Classic Toy Museum, which features well-known toys and related memorabilia. Toys on display include Tinker Toys, Erector Sets, Lincoln Logs, Mr. Potato Head, View-Masters, Colorforms, Lego, Playdough, Slinkys and more. Also in display is the Banned Toys Museum, which features toys that were recalled or banned for a variety of reasons, including safety and appropriateness.
