Burlingame Museum of Pez Memorabilia (The)
The Burlingame Museum of Pez Memorabilia is a Mecca for Pez cultists. As for the rest of us, if you have to ask, "What is Pez?" then this is probably not the place for you. But if the fringes of American pop culture interest you, it is worth a visit. Exhibits include the rare Pez make-a-face. In addition to the candy and dispensers, the museum store also sells stop-and-smell t-shirts (smells just like a strawberry Pez), Pez banks, Pez porcelain boxes, Pez pens, and pretty much anything else related to the cult of Pez. Burlingame is about 20 minutes south of San Francisco, depending on traffic. Visit website for information.

This initially sounded like a quaint "mom and pop" operation of potential interest. Unfortunately, I found it to have more of an air of a deceptive business.
At least one vintage toy, the Whee-lo, was said to be available by the owners over the years and listed for sale at their website. However, when I have tried to order it over the last 7 years and it has never been available.
In addition, what I initially thought were a few separate Bay-area travel websites touting the merits of this museum, I later found were all websites from the same owner. Sorry for the negative review.
