“It's the house from A Christmas Story!”

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 Christmas Story House has FREE street parking on the streets in front of and directly adjacent to the property.

A couple of residents adjoining A Christmas Story House run PAID parking on their property.  A Christmas Story House is not affiliated with either of these operations.

When arriving at A Christmas Story House, we recommend looking for FREE street parking before paying to park.

If you're a Christmas Story fan then this is a must. They just expanded the shop dramatically and you could even buy a full size bunny suit! Awesome!

Free on-street parking, free to look outside the house. We make the stop every time we're near Cleveland. If you're a fan, pay for the tour, but beware that the interior shots from the movie were filmed in a studio, and the house reproduced them (very accurately, too!).

This was a fun stop! The staff were very knowledgable and shared many facts about the movie and the Cleveland house. Worth the trip.

A great stop, especially if you are a fan of the movie. I would recommend stopping if you get the chance.

The museum was very cool and is easy to find. We too the hour tour and felt there were too many people for the tour to feel comfortable. You get to walk around the house and take photos with the objects. You do learn some interesting tid bits about the movies plot during the tour.
If you have an hour to spare while passing through go for it. If this is your main stopping place I'd pass!

Since I'm a huge fan of the movie, I wanted to see the house. Glad I did! It was hard to find parking on the street on a Friday afternoon. So I went next door to park . I was able to take photos of the outside of the building and walk around . Great photo oppurtunity

We stopped for a brief visit right before Christmas. Had a great time wandering through the museum. We heeded others warnings about skipping the house tour and didn't feel like we missed anything

My husband loved it. We quoted the movie all the way back to Chicago.

How did this become an industry? I am a huge fan, and insisted we stop. We had the dogs with us and couldn't go into the house, but we took turns going into the gift shop (which is pretty big but it was all the same stuff over and over). I asked if we could just peek inside and skip the tour because of the dogs, and of course they said no (I didn't actually think they'd let us). The house next to it is amazingly rundown. It looks like they (whoever they are) are buying up houses on the street, so I'm sure this one will be gone eventually or turned into another store. There was a museum, too, and again, we didn't go in, but I'm not sure what they'd even put in a Christmas Story museum. I'm still glad we stopped.
