The A Christmas Story House lets film buffs peek around every corner of the actual house where the classic movie A Christmas Story was filmed. Restored to replicate the glory of Ralphie's house exactly as fans remember it, every room stands ready for touring, accurately adorned with furniture, decoration, and bullying classmates. Tours leave every half hour, with knowledgeable, entertaining docents leading the way, so scene-sleuths can investigate the bathroom where Ralphie got his mouth washed out with soap and traipse across hallowed backyard ground where Red Ryder BB gun dreams took shape.

Across the street, the official A Christmas Story Museum shows off original costumes, props, and memorabilia from the movie set, as well as a photographic avalanche of behind-the-scenes shots. Meanwhile, the attached museum gift store offers a selection of prop replicas to add leg-lamped sophistication to homes.

A Christmas Story House & Museum

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.
