Odd Museums

Did you see this list of odd museums?

I have actually been to one of them, the PEZ museum in Burlingame, Ca. Tucked away in a small storefront, the front room is a small PEZ store, and the back room has been turned into a treasure trove of PEZ memorabilia.

Here's the owner. He says if you own more than 3 PEZ dispensers, you're a collector. My PEZ are on a shelf in Ernest's bathroom.



He bought the original PEZ factory sign on eBay. There were no other bidders.


The famous jack-in-the-box PEZ. We have one.



Ernest with the world's largest PEZ dispenser . It dispenses plastic boxes with PEZ dispensers inside.

That's the end of my tour, but I think I saw a big basket of PEZ dispensers at Jen's house.

Okay, that is just too cool. If we ever come out your way, we're going to have to go.

Interesting museum indeed! I don't like the candy, but Pez have always been fun.

Pez is near and dear to my heart. I loved this post! Great stuff!

We have a small collection of Pez dispensers. Nothing like Jen's... maybe 10 or so. Burlingame is close to my MIL's house, but I have never heard of the museum.

Do you subscribe to Mental Floss? We have been getting it for a few years, but I have never visited to blog before!

Do they have Pez refills? I LOVE Pez, but I can never find the candy without buying a new dispenser.

I wonder if our orthodontist has been there. He has quite a collection in his office....kinda wierd for someone in the dental field, huh?

I had no idea! I loved Pez as a kid, not the candy so much, the dispensers are so neat.
