The film takes places in Indiana, but a lot of it was filmed in Cleveland. A man who owns a company who now produces the famous leg lamps bought the house used in exterior (and some interior) film shots and renovated it to get it as close to the movie house as possible. And you can tour it!
There is a little museum across the street full of great photos and costumes and props.
The gift shop was really great. There were tons of leg lamp themed souvenirs.
The hats! They had the hilarious elf hats from the movie too! And Randy's bib!this apron: Save the neck for me Clark!
Cousin Eddie hat.
I especially loved the kitchen. There was a group of ladies in the doorway watching us take pictures. They were laughing and encouraging us and one lady said "I want YOUR pictures!" Ha!
"Daddy's gonna kill Ralphie."
Can you believe they let you touch everything and sit in the chairs and jump on the beds? I loved it!
"Meatloaf, feet loaf, double beetloaf."
The Christmas story house and museum is definitely worth a visit! We had such a wonderful time!
