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 was one of our first stops after landing at the airport. You won't find it by mistake but it isn't tough to find either. It seems odd to have such a tourist attraction in what seems like an otherwise normal neighborhood but even some...More

It’s in a neighborhood and I didn’t really see accommodations nearby. We stayed downtown and took an Uber, which I would suggest doing. Not much else to do out by this attraction
