A Christmas Story House, Cleveland

4.5
#3 of 12 in Museums in Cleveland
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.

    What fun this was and inexpensive. We got to tour the house where the movie was filmed. Our tour guide, Anthony, was great. We learned of all the "mistakes" in the movie. Example: The blue bowling bal...  more »

    We were traveling and staying over one night in Cleveland. Only had a short amount of time to sight-see. Figured not long enough to really enjoy the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Then saw that the A Chr...  more »

    I love the movie, A Christmas Story, so this review may be slightly bias. We decided to visit the Christmas Story house on a whim because we had some time to kill while we were in Cleveland. It turned...  more »

    Where do I start? I must admit, in all fairness, that I am a huge fan of the movie, but if you're considering visiting, then you're probably a fan yourself. The tour was fantastic, and the tour guide, Gary, was extremely knowledgeable! We were able to walk through the house and explore the museum. The tavern across the street was also great and very affordable! If you're military, the discount is great!

    We visited the house and rented out the loft upstairs this weekend. It was a fantastic experience and the staff we dealt with were absolutely amazing. Once the museum closed we had free reign over the house and it was a childhood dream come true. I would recommend this experience for anyone that loves the movie especially for families. I will attach a few pictures of the loft below and remember this is a separate section closed off that connects to the house after the museum closes.

    This is another must see while in Cleveland! It was neat to see the house in the movie plus the fire truck and car used in the movie! The only issue is parking because there is not much, but we just rode down a block to find free parking! There are a couple neighbors trying to con people into paying $5 bucks to park, but we found free parking!

    Neat to finally see this place. We were unable to take the tour of the inside but being able to walk up to it and take pictures was amazing. The gift shop is outstanding as well.

    Spent the night. The staff was great, helpful and knowledgeable. Guided us not only on the tours but how to enjoy the area of Tremont. I will go again and will recommend it to any Christmas fan!

Where to stay in Cleveland

Most of Cleveland's hotels are located in downtown, though you can also plenty of comfortable and affordable rooms in the city's outlying neighborhoods. Many downtown hotels offer discounted weekend rates and deals that include tickets to some of the city's major attractions, but if you prefer to stay away from the central part of town, consider the neighborhoods east of the Cuyahoga River. Staying in this part of Cleveland allows you easy access to the city's cultural district, renowned for its museums, galleries, and parks.
