We just traveled to Cleveland this past weekend with friends who had never been there, and one of their requests was to visit the Christmas Story House in Cleveland. We are originally from Cleveland but had never been there. We had a great visit this past Monday. The museum was fun and featured many of the original costumes and props... More

Awesome. Looked just like it did in the movie. Leg lamp was on and it brought back that warm and happy Christmas feeling. THe house is available to tour so check ahead for times. It is a must see if you have watched the movie!

If you're a fan of the movie, you should love it! Yes, the area where the house is located has seen better days, lots of run down homes, etc, but didn't seem unsafe. Drove around the block just once & managed to find parking on the street. Bought our tickets at the gift shop across the street & had to... More

We love the Christmas Story and was very excited to go on the tour of the house. When you approach the house, try to opt for street parking, as opposed to the gentlemen who are you waving you toward the $5 parking spaces. You will need to purchase your tickets for the tour at the Gift Shop across the street.... More

This was so touristy, but oh-so-fun. Lots of great photo ops and wacky facts about the filming of the movie. Check out the museum/gift shop across the street. I recommend re-watching the movie before you go!

We were on our way home across country and we decided to make this one of our stops. I must first start by saying the neighborhood is in bad shape and was sketchy at best. We almost decided to stay in the car and keep going, however there were a few other tourists we could see, so we decided to... More

This was an aside to my trip to Cleveland. I am a huge fan of this movie and frankly do not go unless you are. The guided tour is good with some good information. I did not think there was much I could lean. It is a good reproduction and I loved it. The house is hands on. You can... More

A fun stop off on our way to the Indians game. The tour starts in the living room of the house where you get a history of the film from start to finish. The house is interactive which means you can take your picture with the Red rider bb gun and the leg lamp. Climb under the sink to hide... More
