You’ve seen the movie "A Christmas Story" along with 40 million other people in marathon showings on cable TV. Now you can visit the house, museum & gift shop in person! Filmed partially in Cleveland and released in 1983, the story of Ralphie Parker and his Red Ryder 200-shot Carbine Action Air Rifle comes to life on this nostalgic tour. The tour includes admissions to the Christmas Story House (lovingly renovated and furnished) and the separate Museum & Gift Shop. You can see items from the movie on display along with over 100 behind-the-scenes photos, and movie-related memorabilia is available for sale. And, yes, Black Bart’s shed is still there to see! The tour will also show you trendy Tremont, the Higbee Building and Public Square where the parade scene was filmed. You will also learn the story behind the house's purchase and restoration and some fun facts about the movie. You may not win a "major award", but you will have fun on the A Christmas Story House Tour! Tour is 1.5 to 2 hours long.
There are no rides or tours Christmas Eve, Christmas Day or New Year's Day. All fares are now subject to a 7.75% State Sales Tax.
For 2012 we are extending our Silver Bells tour into trendy Tremont including a ride by the famous house from the movie A Christmas Story (there will NOT be a stop just a ride by the house.) You will also learn about Clevelands past, present and future while seeing the available lights in Public Square and Playhouse Square. This tour will last approximately 1.5 hours depending on traffic and weather. NEW DEPARTURE TIME IS 7:30 PM FROM THE STATION FOR THE 2012 SEASON.
