A Christmas Story House, now restored to its movie splendor, is open year round to the public for tours. Directly across the street from the house is the official A Christmas Story House Museum, which features original props, costumes and memorabilia from the film, as well as hundreds of rare behind-the-scenes photos. Among the props and costumes are the toys from the Higbee’s window, Randy’s snowsuit and zeppelin, the chalkboard from Miss Shields’ classroom and the family car. After reliving A Christmas Story at Ralphie’s house don’t forget to visit the museum gift shop for your own Major Award Leg Lamp and other great movie memorabilia.

It never snowed while making the film, soap flakes were used

A very interesting place, an older house in Cleveland where they filmed the movie Christmas Story which is still shown every Christmas

Lots of fun visiting the Christmas house and museum. It looks exactly as it does in the movie. I was so excited to see this place because I always loved the movie. The tour guide was very informative but the tour was not long enough. It did not give you enough time to fully read and enjoy all of the... More

This place is GREAT! If you are a fan of the film you will love this. The outside of the house is restored to its original condition in the film and the inside has been remodeled to be pretty close; not all of the interior scenes were shot in this house. They let you touch things, sit on the couch,... More

The Christmas Story House took me back to the magic I experience each Christmas I watch the movie. The House and Museum offers a quick tour and photo ops that you should take. A quick tip, go upstairs while everyone is downstairs. You will get to view more and play with the phone. If you're in Cleveland take a tour... More

If you are a fan of the movie then the Christmas Story house is a must-see. Although the house had to be almost completely rebuilt inside etc. the owner of the premises was an obvious fan, and has successfully kept the dream alive. Kudos to him. There is a great little museum across the road and tons of souvenirs. The... More

This is my husbands all time favorite movie. If you love this movie, it's a must see. You could do a self guided tour or with a guide. Totally recommend going with the guide. They have a great store too!!!

I am a big fan of the movie and I loved listening to all the movie details. I found it to be very educational. Loved that the house was interactive too. This is one of my favorite parts.

Only way to see inside the house/museum is to pay. Cost is $10 per person (adult) includes tour of house and museum. Took approx an hour once tour started. The tour guide was extremely fun and informative, you could tell she really enjoyed her job. She explained a lot of little known facts re: production of movie and how house... More
