We were in Cleveland so we had to see the actual house! Not the easiest place to find since it is in a neighborhood. We did not pay for the tour of the whole house and museum but we spent some time in the gift shop bldg. Any and all Christmas story "stuff". It was a lot of fun and... More

First of all, the Christmas Story house is in what many would call a bit of a sketchy neighborhood. The stret near the Christmas Story house was littered with numerous beer cans, some appeared to be recently left behind and others very faded suggesting that they had been there awhile. Cigarette butts also line bewteen the parking areas and the... More

The tour guide was very informative & friendly. There is a museum & large gift shop included in the price. We were able to walk around without feeling any pressure to hurry or buy anything.

We took a trip from Erie, PA to The Christmas Story House in Cleveland on a whim. Visiting during the off season gave us the opportunity to get a great tour without the crowds. We were able to take lots of photos. We sat on the furniture and posed with the props. Our tour guide even offered us additional time... More

Where else can you see a classis movie then visit the house? What FUN is that? It's a memorable tour and lasting happy memories for the entire family. Not much parking available when crowded so get there early. Of course, It's packed in December. A fun thing to do in Cleveland in the holiday Season! A+

It was so much fun to explore and remember what happened where in the movie. Of course, it's not identical to the indoor movie scenes (because those were not filmed inside this house, but on a movie set in CA, I believe) but close enough for some good photos and memories. The tour guides were friendly, and also fans themselves,... More
