Create an itinerary including A Christmas Story House
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 and other Cleveland attractions into our Cleveland trip builder app, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • You can book the home online, which is the quickest and easiest way. When you arrive, check in time is 3PM but if the loft is ready, the staff will give you access. Before checking in, make time...

  • This was such a neat experience! If you have a love for the movie 'A Christmas Story', this is a must see! Would be the perfect holiday trip and you can even stay overnight at the house! It was very interactive, take a photo with the leg lamp, check out the toys under the Christmas tree, bathroom had the soap and decoder pin and the kitchen you could sit in the sink cupboard! The Second house had memorabilia and was more like a museum, then the gift shop had a TON of stuff, it's huge! We had a really great time!
  • A stand alone experience of Cleveland! The tour guides are so friendly and endearing. Something about this tour is so heartwarming, it makes you feel like a little kid again. If you have the chance to visit it's one of the most spectacular ways to spend $15. You get a tour of the house and a tour of the museum and it really is something you'll keep with you. Have some Christmas any day of the year! 🎅❤️
  • I absolutely loved this tour. This has been one of my favorite movies since I can remember. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. She was also funny and understanding of my children being children. Parking was hard to find but it was not very crowded. The gift shop has such a great collection of everything.
  • We were in the Cleveland area visiting family for the Holidays and wanted to check out the site of a Christmas classic movie. The tour and museum were fun to see. The tour guide answered many questions and gave further insight to the film's production. You need to purchase tickets in the gift shop or online. However, the online purchase only works if you buy them ahead of time since they are mailed to you versus emailed to you. I would recommend going at a time rather than Christmas to avoid any lines. We went one day and the wait was 3 hours but only 30 minutes the next day.
  • Fun place to visit to see the house from the movie! It has a cool back story to why this location was chosen to film. They have some of the original props on display at their museum. You can even stay the night here if you make a reservation but it can be pricey!
