I am not a fan of "A Christmas Story" but I went anyway. It was fun. They even have the "leg lamp". Puts you in the Christmas Spirit no matter the time of year. Who would have ever thought they would have turned that house into a museum.

We just got home from a trip to Cleveland (17-19 Oct 14) and made it a point to see the Christmas Story house, gift shop, and museum. It was fantastic! I've been to many museums and listened to many tour guides but the best is Sam, who gave a terrific insight of the house and how it was chosen for... More

It was interesting to see and be in the house. Small, very short and quick to see everything. The tour guy was informative, this time of year it's quite. There was 5 people of the tour.

I'm not a huge fan of the movie, but seeing the house was neat. The tour guide was very friendly and informative. Worth the stop!

We really enjoyed our visit here but was a little disappointed that we almost felt rushed through. It seemed after the tour we had very little time for pictures. If the owner paid 250k to restore the house then he should have consider putting the kitchen sink in the right side of the room. But otherwise I highly recommended it... More

It's worth it! If you've enjoyed the movie over the years and your young'uns have grown up watching it, The Christmas Story House is a worthwhile diversion while visitig Cleveland. While traveing with my daughter to the west coast, we had a lengthy layover in cleveland sowe grabbed a rental car and drove the relatively short distance to the "house".... More

This house has been restored to its "A Christmas Story" glory, and we have an entrepreneur and fellow fan to thank for that: his name is Brian Jones, and he has made this house a tourist destination for people from all over the world (check out the map in the museum and you'll see what I mean). My mom, sister,... More

This was just a wonderful, wonderful place to visit! We are huge fans of this movie. The only complaint is when you buy your ticket for admission, you are only allowed 30 minutes in the house (it's considered a tour only entrance). 15 minutes was a discussion about the house (which was wonderful to hear the history of), however 15...

Though the town isn't layed out 100% exact, and it's in a cramped neighborhood. The museum memorabilia and Christmas story culture is wonderful.
