I dragged my family out here when we were in Cleveland to watch the Blue Jays play the Indians at Progressive Field on easter weekend a couple years ago. The house is in a residential neighborhood as many have stated, although I didn't find it to be scary or dangerous, perhaps a bit rundown, working class neighborhood, but never felt... More

This was my third time here. My G/F and her sister are big fans of the movie and we decided to stop last minute for a visit. After the first time, its a bit underwhelming but overall a fun visit if you are a fan of the movie. The surrounding area seems a bit sketchy, but I have never encountered... More

We spent 30min and it was worth it, only because we had an appt elsewhere. We toured the home and gift shop and never hit the museum. It was well worth it. The tour guide was wonderful and we were able to take some great pics with props. Loved IT!!

This was a treat! As big fans of the movie, we stopped here on our trip to Cleveland. The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. The tour guide in the house gave so many interesting facts we had no idea about! The whole experience is interactive and the staff allows you to do as you please in the house. The... More

Other than the weather in Cleveland, OH at the time, I can't say anything bad about our experience at Christmas Story House. We had a great time taking the tour, visiting the small museum & the gift shop. Gift shop was a bit pricey, but what one isn't?

First of all, let me say the poor and terrible reviews or any review saying the neighborhood is dangerous are so wrong it's not even funny. It's a working class neighborhood in a historical district. We parked in the paid parking bedside the house for 5 bucks. The owner was very nice and told us where to go first and... More

Then stop by the Museum to learn all about the filming of the movie, great props on display. And the store has everything you could possibly imagine including the... More

If you live or visit Clevleand , OH. You need to venture over to w.11th for The Christmas Story House Tour. $10.00 to tour the famous home for about 10 minutes, but well worth the nostalgia. Make sure you go accross the street to the Chrismas Story gift shop. This attraction is located in the center of the famous Tremont... More

We've talked about visiting the CSH for years and finally made it there. It didn't disappoint. The house was so much fun and the staff invited us to actively participate -- take photos, try on hats and scarves, be silly, and have fun. It's all there -- the leg lamp, the Fragile crate, the cupboard under the kitchen sink, and... More
