The Burger Museum by Burger Beast featured well over 3000 Historical Artifacts, Collectibles & Ephemera from Burger and Comfort Food Restaurants from all over the United States. In addition, it housed the Burger Beast’s extensive collection featuring everything from a 1950s Krystal Waitress Uniform, an early 1960s Burger King Menu Board, to a 1970s Burger Queen Sign.
I wrote about the histories of many of the burger chains in my book All About the Burger. The Burger Museum opened in December 2016. Unfortunately, it closed its doors permanently on Sunday, September 29th, 2019.
If you’d like to own a piece of the Burger Museum, many of the items on the display have found their way onto my eBay store.

Burger Museum Video Walkthrough
My friend Steve Lantz was the last person at the Burger Museum during its closing day. He filmed a phenomenal walkthrough video and captured the beauty of my labor of love.

Dinner at the Burger Museum
The Burger Museum hosted many events in its three years of operation, but my favorite was Night at the Burger Museum.
In December 2018, old dishes from classic restaurants were re-envisioned in 5 courses by the very talented Chefs Phil Bryant and Veronica Valdivia.
Tables were set up inside the museum and attendees also received a history lesson at the beginning of each course on the origins of the dish.
