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.

After finding this I was thrilled that we took the time to seek out this house/museum! We parked on the road(did not pay) and visited the house, and the gift shop and museum across from the house. We also stopped in the bar across from the museum which was tasty!

Some locals will try to sell you parking. Tickets for the tour are purchased in the gift shop and the tour begins there. I do not know... More
