If you love the movie, this is a fun stop while in town. Parking is few and far between. If you happen to be traveling in an RV, you will have a very hard time finding a place to park, so keep that in mind....More

It was ok not overly impressed. Located in a residential neighborhood tight streets with minimal parking. The gift shop was neat.

This was a great tour. My entire family enjoyed the tour and would encourage others to visit. The tour guide was knowledgeable and it was great to learn some behind the scene movie trivia.

Very neat fun thing to do for Christmas especially if you love the movie. They have characters on board and tell you other interesting facts about the movie.

If you do the 24 Christmas Day marathon, don't miss. Tours start ever 30 minutes. You can roam through the house and pretend you are in the movie. Knowledgeable staff. Lots of movie merchandise. Parking is tough.

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.

20 minute drive. The Christmas Story House is over the bridge from the downtown core. We chose to Über there to avoid having to find parking as it's on a residential street.
