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.

The information the tour guide shared was very interesting and informative. Loved the museum and gift shop across the street. Did not mind paying higher prices in the gift shop and the $10.00 for the house tour. Truly lucky for us that the house was restored. Some other houses near by are in bad shape...so sad.

I really just wanted to drive by and see the outside of the house but thankfully my family wanted to do the tour as well. This is so much fun and worth the $10 ticket! $8 for senior citizens. Purchase your tickets across the street at the gift shop and go back for souveniors later! The museum has artifacts from... More

I absolutely LOVED it here. However, I am a big fan of the movie. My friend and I loved it, our kids enjoyed it but did not love it quite as much as we did. The house is so well done. Kudos to the owner. It is well recreated with great props - like the bb gun, character hats and... More

We had to come here, being fans of the movie. We came at the end of August which was a great time to visit- no crowd! We did pay the 5.00 to park in a neighbor's lot since they had the road blocked doing some road work. Go to the store to get your tour tickets-I think they were around... More

What a hoot. I got to sit under the sink - just like Randy - hoping that Daddy wouldn't "kill Ralphie." The museum, the house and the gift shop brought back every line from the movie. The guides the gave presentations were animated and knew the history of the film making and the house history inside and out, answering every... More

My family loves the movie and I got the chance to go see it on a whim. The neighborhood is sketchy, but the house, museum and gift shop are all well done. I didn't do the tour as the interior shots weren't filmed there, but it was still cool to see.

Visited this with family. I was lucky to find a place to park on the street because it was early otherwise we would have to pay $5 to park close to the house. The tour guide was friendly and informative. We were able to roam the house and take pictures with the props.

I'm glad I went. It made me smile. The museum has some cool stuff like clothes and props. The shop, while overpiced (hey it's a museum gift shop!) had some neat stuff. It made me smile and the tour guide was well informed and answered all of my questions. Now, for the negative. The "Bumpusses" next door are somewhat intimidating... More

The tour guide was awesome! She gave history from the leg lamp replicas to how the house was acquired. The guide just gives you the history and then you are free to roam the house. There are tons of props that you are permitted to touch for photo ops. Well worth to $10. There's three properties - the house, a... More
