This was a nice time to visit because there was snow on ground as in movie, but no crowds! Evidentally it gets really crazy in Nov, Dec, and beginning of Jan.

If you are a fan of the classic holiday movie, you would love this place. The house used in the filming of the movie has been restored to resemble a house in an old neighborhood from the 1940s. There is even a leg lamp in the window and the old man's car is parked in a garage across the street in the museum. The gift shop is a hoot. You can buy leg lamps as well as pink bunny suits. There is even a "Christmas Vacation" section where you can get a Marty Moose mug. This place is open year round so come during the spring and summer and avoid the Christmas crowds (and better weather). If anyone is visiting Cleveland, this should be a must see as well as the rock hall.

There is no signage telling you that you have to buy tickets @ the gift store before going to the house. Lots of memories.

Get our tickets at the gift shop before heading to the house. You can't get tickets there. Bring so extra cash to spend because the gift shop is a Christmas pop culture wonderland!

From Our Editors

Since 1983, families have spent their holidays around the television, watching A Christmas Story and joining in the triumphs and failures of 9-year-old Ralphie as he struggles to secure a Red Ryder BB gun from Santa's bag. Although the cult-classic film showed Ralphie living in Indiana, the house in which the movie took place rests in Cleveland?and is now a museum. When MSNBC interviewed lifelong fan and A Christmas Story House & Museum owner Brian Jones, they profiled the story of how he found the house on eBay and jumped at the chance to own it. Today, he?s turned it into a year-round place of pilgrimage for fans and the site of an occasionally-held convention for Ralphies.

Jones?s restoration has returned rooms to exactly how they were in the film, letting guests gaze at the tinsel-strewn tree with its star falling off and explore the bathroom where Ralphie?s mouth was washed out with soap?a time-tested method for cavity prevention. Visitors can even attempt to hide like little Randy in the cabinet under the sink. After seeing the backyard that still houses the original shed, where Ralphie defended his family against Black Bart, fans head across the street to the A Christmas Story House & Museum. Here, original props such as the toys from the Higbee?s department-store window, Randy?s snowsuit, and Miss Shields?s classroom chalkboard join other memorabilia and hundreds of behind-the-scenes photos. Before leaving, guests drop into the gift shop to pick up a leg lamp just like the one Ralphie's old man cherished so dearly.

Cleveland Guide

Cleveland is a bustling city with a lot going on. Between the award-winning restaurants and the many museums along the waterfront and in University Circle, there are countless things to do in Cleveland. This Cleveland guide highlights some of the best festivals to attend and points out some great Cleveland deals.

One of Cleveland’s many things to do is to take in a sporting event. Downtown Cleveland is home to three different professional sports venues, housing the Browns football team, the Cavaliers basketball team, and the Indians baseball team. On top of this, there are also minor league hockey and arena football teams.

Cleveland also boasts numerous restaurants, many serving up hearty and classic American fare like hamburgers and sandwiches. Two places to check out include B Spot, which is owned by Cleveland’s Iron Chef, Michael Symon, and Melt Bar and Grilled, which has been featured on the Food Network. Home to dozens of Italian restaurants and small privately-owned art galleries, Cleveland’s Little Italy should not be overlooked. Their yearly street festival is full of food, live music, and rides.

Whether it is medieval art, rock and roll memorabilia, antique cars, or dinosaur bones, there is a museum in Cleveland for it. The Cleveland Museum of Art, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum, and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History are all noteworthy, as are the Health Museum, SPACES art gallery, and the Great Lakes Science Center.

No guide to Cleveland is complete without mentioning the many concerts, plays, and musicals performed in the city every month. Eight different theaters make up PlayhouseSquare, and live music can be heard at Severance Hall, Quicken Loans Arena, the House of Blues, the Agora, Peabody’s, and Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica, just to name a few.
