Go back into history viewing this iconic house. Reminisce about the movie and if you are lucky enough to be from Cleveland, what is was like being a kid growing up in this fun town during the early years.

We have visited multiple times. We do the Christmas story run every year. Kids enjoy the house and museum. Only downfall is parking. It’s right in a residential area. Best to visit during off holiday times.

The cost is $12 to enter the house & museum. You can however walk around outside the house & wander around the gift shop. The gift shop, house, & museum are 3 different buildings

Well you posted to get an answer but you pretty much answered your own post. YES, it is a great movie and a great house to visit. We loved it. Don't forget the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame too.
