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.

  • If your like most people who live around here you know the movie and know why people like this house. But I can't say I enjoyed it at all. Looks very different inside and out. Everything is roped off (which I do understand). It cost a bit to much. And everything around it is not in great condition.
  • 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.
  • If your a Christmas Story movie fan, you will enjoy visiting the Christmas Story House and Museum. It's a unique experience the whole family will enjoy. Make sure to bring your cameras! FYI: Cameras are welcome here but flash cannot be used.
  • Very cool to walk through the house, though the entire experience seemed very brief. Is it worth the ten dollars? If you want to feel like you're in the movie for nostalgic reasons then yes. They did have the dining room closed off for some reason, and the boys bedroom was switched with the parents bedroom, and the original boys bedroom was closed, which was disappointing (I wanted to see the view from Ralphie's window where the robbers came over the fence).
  • 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!!
