A Christmas Story House, now restored to its movie splendor, is open year round to the public for tours. 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, the chalkboard from Miss Shields' classroom and the family car. After reliving A Christmas Story at Ralphie's house don't forget to visit the museum gift shop for your own Major Award Leg Lamp and other great movie memorabilia.

This movie is a family favorite for us, so to experience this house was a real treat. The tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly, and the house very interactive. Even the phone plays the f*#% word conversation mom has! It was so much fun! The gift shop there was huge and offered items you would never even think of.... More

We are not huge fans of the movie but we have seen it tons of times...but who hasn't! Interesting history about the guy who bought it on Ebay and what he did to get it where it is today. Very cool movie history and EVERYTHING in the house can be touched (authentic props are under glass at the museum). There... More

While in Cleveland, we took a trip to the Christmas Story House. It was a lot of fun and there are some very interesting facts about the Movie and the house. Everyone should go at least once.

What a fun place. Very nostalgic and absolutely worth visiting if you're in Cleveland. We went back at night to see the house lit for Christmas.

A fun surprise! Tour the house the movie was filmed at, visit the museum and buy souveniers at the gift shop. Everything is well done and light hearted fun. It did cost us some extra bucks to get the granddaughter to put on the bunny suit [bribery], but the pictures are well worth it! Go and have fun!

The House is pretty easy to find in the city, especialy if you have a decent GPS. We had no trouble. Parking is available on the street if there's room but neighbors will let you park nearby (for a fee, of course). We took the guided tour and our guide was very informative, with info about the house and its... More

Stopped by as we were passing thru Cleveland and became a fan. The tour was great. The staff funny and informative. And a great lesson in movie making.

Nothing is free in this world, including a "free" visit to this place. The guided tour they offered cost $11/person, so of course we didn't do it. Otherwise, there is a gift shop there - nothing else. We won't go back there.

If you love the movie this is a must see. The house is interactive and there are even bunny suits to try on. The tour is full of history and fun facts and the museum across the street has some of the actual props.

Never knew about this museum and house until now. It took 15 years of visits to my bother in laws to visit. It's a fun place to see especially if you see the 24 hour loop of the movie every Christmas. The house has been restored and you can squish your self under the sink, sit on the toilet, hold... More
