The 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.
