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.

  • My wife wanted to visit since she loves the movie. House is well kept, and our tour guide was very well prepared. Much of the film was shot in Canada, since there was no snow when they filmed. Gift...

  • I went to the Christmas Story House with my family and had a great time. It was very interesting to know the facts behind one of our favorite movies. Keith was our tour guide and you could tell that he loves his job and knew his stuff! He really engaged with us as an audience and was very energetic. It was very interesting to see all the props and pictures from the movie and also seeing the firetruck and the Oldsmobile sedan. Very cool and well kept up. Thanks for making me and my families experience so great!
  • It is nice to go there and do the tour just for information purposes. Most everything is replicas but still pretty cool. I had a great time just checking everything out and learning some interesting details about the movie I never knew. Definitely worth the money to do it, because you get to check out the little museum across the street also. There is a cute little gift shop too.
