Pez Museum: Free Admission Day | Burlingame

Screen Shot 2016-01-05 at 11.19.06 PMThe first Thursday of every month is free admission to the Pez Museum in Burlingame, a mini-museum where you can find over 500 pez dispensers from the past 80 years.

See the world’s largest pez dispenser and a rare Pez, worth about $5,000, a Mr Potato Head character, which was taken off the market in 1973 because the small pieces were a choking hazard.

Admission includes access to the Classic Toy Museum, the Burlingame Museum of PEZ Memorabilia and the Banned Toy Museum.
