A Christmas Story House, now restored to its movie splendor, is open year round to the public for tours. Directly across the street from the house is the official A Christmas Story House Museum, which features original props, costumes and memorabilia from the film, as well as hundreds of rare behind-the-scenes photos. Among the props and costumes are the toys from the Higbee's window, Randy's snowsuit, the chalkboard from Miss Shields' classroom and the family car. After reliving A Christmas Story at Ralphie's house don't forget to visit the museum gift shop for your own Major Award Leg Lamp and other great movie memorabilia.

We visited this site just to check it out since we had both seen the movie. We didn't take the indoor tour, but took pictures of the outside and visited the gift shop. It was pretty cool.

I went in summer, and it was crowded, but they manage the yourselves in small groups, and I did not feel like it was crowded.

Start with the Christmas Story house, plan on 2 hours for tour and browsing. Cemetery next, finish with Hall of Fame. Plan on 3 hours minimum for the Hall.

Parking is free across the street from the house. You buy tickets at the store and then a guide will take you across the street to the house and then to the museum.
