This was a last minute decision to stop here since we were there on business. I love the movie and have it on every year on Christmas...as background noise...haha. The house was beautiful and has been restored and there is a museum and HUGE gift shop. I love the movie, but not enough to get a shirt, leg lamp or... More

The house and museum were great. Lot's of memorabilia. The tour guide in the actual house was awesome. Got a lot of back story behind the movie. He was very knowledgeable. The Gift shop was SUPER expensive though.

I traveled to Cleveland to visit family and we decided to visit A Christmas Story house. I often quote this movie in my day-to-day interactions with people so I considered myself a huge fan of the movie. We took the house tour, which is reasonably priced. The tour is entirely interactive which is a nice change from just walking around... More

We took a long weekend to visit Cleveland this was a must stop for us. I would definitely recommend stopping here if you are a fan and I would not hesitate to come back. Parking is limited but we parked in a neighbor's yard who was parking cars for $5. The $10 admission per person to the museum is worth... More

Recently went "back home" for a visit to Cleveland, Ohio... I became a "hometown tourist".. We visited the Christmas Story House and was very impressed! There wasn't any line to enter... the cost for a senior was only $8 and the tour was interactive! The lady that gave us the informative speech first, was excellent! She told us that we... More

I loved this attraction. I expected a tour through an old dingy house because I love this movie. Instead, we arrived and were immediately directed to secure parking next to the Bumpus House. It wasn't free, but I'm good with that. The surrounding neighborhood wasn't terrible, but it wasn't idyllic. Our tour guide (Sam) was very informative and loved dealing... More

We had a great time touring the Christmas Story house! We learned a lot from the docent and it was cool to see where some of the movie was filmed. The museum has lots of artifacts and pictures from the filming. Very cool if you are a fan!

After many years of watching this classic movie during the Christmas holiday we finally were able to locate and visit this place! This house was featured along with many scenes from downtwon Cleveland in the movie. I can relate very well having lived in Cleveland during the time portrayed including having wanted and received that same Daisy Red Rider BB... More

Went with a few friends. Living in the area, this was something I always heard about during the holidays, and would always think "Yeah, I guess I'll do that someday." Finally got around to it during the spring of 2014 (after living on NE OH for 21 years), and had a great time! Outside of the holidays, there is no... More
