A Christmas Story House, Cleveland

#3 of 22 in Museums in Cleveland
Specialty Museum · Landmark
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.

  • Our tour guide was probably the best tour guide ever, he was funny asked questions and kept the tour interactive and fun. He was totally amazing and yeah. That house though was amazing, they have a gift shop with everything that’s in the movie it’s honestly super awesome. The people there were super nice and very kind, this place is amazing and, I would definitely recommend if your traveling with family or solo and looking for something fun to do! ❤️😊 hope to come back again sometime✌️
  • This place is adorable! I love that the house has been in-restored so it is an exact replica of the original house. The house is full of time period replica props that you can touch, sit on, play with and recreate your own movie scenes. We were given lots of "fun facts" and we were given plenty of time to enjoy. Didn't feel rushed at all. There is an incredible gift shop across the street that has EVERYTHING you would ever want to purchase that references the movie. There is also a "museum" that holds many of the original props and costumes. So fun to see the REAL Red Ryder Bebe Gun! The price to get into the house is a little high, but it gets you into the museum too. I was there with my family ranging in age from 4-67 and we all LOVED IT!
