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.

A real cool place to see if you are a fan of the movie.

I have been a big fan of the movie for years and never went to the house until this year, and I wish I went sooner. While the house is small, it was really neat to see how they... read more

If you've ever seen the movie A Christmas Story, then you will be pleasantly surprised at how interesting this place can be. First, you tour the house where the original movie was filmed, then you can visit the museum to see all the props, etc and they also have a nice gift shop with everything you can think of that...

We heard about the Christmas story house a few time and decided to take a trip to see it, it's 2 hours from our house so it made a nice day trip. We went on the Christmas story run so we read that the street would closed until 12 noon so we arrived about 2 Pm on Saturday. It wasn't... More

Thank you Brian Jones for restoring this place back to what it is today. The house is interactive, the museum has a great collection of memorabilia including the recently added Red Ryder gun from the movie. The gift shop is also Great. This time Brian was there helping out. I love it here and look forward to a future visit.

By far my favorite line of the movie. Must see if you like this movie. We were here this time for the A Christmas Story Run. You can do the 5k or 10k, but PLEASE if you are a walker or slow runner stick to the back. It's incredibly frustrating to get around slow folks especially when the race emails... More

If you haven't seen the movie, STOP!, watch it, then go visit this house to fully appreciate this Americana museum. It's not far from downtown Cleveland and if you visit the house, you'll have some great bragging right during December each year. The guided tour is great and you'll learn more about the movie and some fun facts. Each time... More
