We did a family tour here during December. We all had a good time seeing everything in person that we'd seen on the movie. It's crazy to see how simplistic life was back then and how much it has changed. My children thought it was cool to see the "oldie" stuff. We would defiantly go back again.

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.

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.
