I love the "Christmas Story" movie with Ralphie and his Red Ryder BB Gun so it was only logical that one day I would visit the sight of the one of the best Christmas movies ever. Yes, I sit up and watch the Christmas Story Marathon almost the whole 24 hours and of course I have the DVD. Walking through... More

Great trip for fans of movie. You can park on the street for free. There is a short talk about the back story and secrets of the making of the movie. Was interesting learning things to look for the next time you watch the movie. After the talk you get to explore the house and get photo opportunities throughout the... More

This is a very good stop in central Cleveland for an hour or so. They do charge admission, but it is worth it. The things in the house are hands on too so you can hold up the Red Rider bee bee gun for a picture, plus a bunch of other things / props.

If you love the movie this is not to be missed! The movie house is in a regular Cleveland suburban neighborhood. It was purchased and restored to it's movie look. For a few dollars you can go in, walk around, see the Lifeboy soap on the sink, even hide under the sink like Randy! Get behind the scenes scoop. The... More

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
