A Christmas Story House, Cleveland
(4.4/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
A Christmas Story House offers the chance to relive the 1983 film by the same name. Step inside to learn about the making of the film, and see where nine-year-old Ralphie lived. Hardcore fans of the film act as guides to lead you through the house and divulge trivia. Props such as the Red Ryder BB gun, the boys’ winter hats, and the leg lamp litter the house. You are welcome to come relive your favorite moments from the film; crawl under the same kitchen sink that Randy once hid beneath, and look for mail in the old mailbox that Ralphie checked every day until his secret decoder pin finally arrived. After touring the house, pop across the street to the museum where you will find more props and costumes from the film, as well as behind-the-scenes photos from the production process. Put A Christmas Story House into our Cleveland tour planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • I took a picture underneath the sink (where Randy hid when he thought the old man was gonna kill Ralphie) and that was great. Held the Red Rider and the bowling ball and rubbed the Leg Lamp. The house and the museum and the garage with the old cars is actually a pretty good bang for your buck. Was really cool to be there and every Christmas I will be able to say that I was there!!
  • The tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic which made it fun to listen to the stories she was telling. We had to wait a half for the next tour, so check the times if you go :D They play movies in the gift shop so you can always do that or browse the gift shop while you wait. Everything in the gift shop is super expensive...to me any way. They did have some shirts for 10 bucks. It was a very cool experience.The house portion of the tour is very interactive.
  • Cool that this place exists. The gift shop is really cool. The tour costs $11 for adults. Which I didn't want to pay since the museum was closed so all you were paying for was a tour of the inside of the house. But just looking at the outside of the house delighted me.
  • Been visiting A Christmas story house since 2006. So much has changed over the years its amazing; from adding new items from the movie to now helping restore the neighborhood. If you ever have a christmas twinkle in your eye the nostalgia of the house, the enthusiasm of the staff and the smiles on the vistors faces will warm your heart. If you want to hear the full story of the movie and the life of the house, I recommend you go in the afternoon and in the summer if you can. Then you can truly take in the entire atmosphere. 1130am to 2pm seems to usually be the slowest times. Its worth every penny and great for all ages! Make sure to try on the pink bunny suits too!!!
  • Awesome. Such a great tour. The tour guide was awesome. Definitely will be making a trip to see it again. If your a fan of the movie than you'll love it. Highly recommended!
