Are you a big fan of the 1983 movie A Christmas Story? Barely a blip on the box office reports of that year, it’s slowly established itself as a holiday classic.
The story of Ralphie who wants a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas was set in a fictionalized version of Hammond, Indiana, but some of the exterior scenes were shot in Cleveland. They included the house Ralphie’s family lived in, a classic wood house in Tremont, where some of the interiors were also filmed, with the famous leg lamp ensconced in the living room
That house has been restored and turned into a museum, with props, costumes and other memorabilia from the movie, and festooned with photos from the film. It’s open almost every day of the year but what better time to go than during the Christmas season? (It’s open every day of December except December 25, including Christmas and New Year’s Eves). Yes, even Mondays!
Admission is $13 for adults, $10 for kids Ralphie’s age (3-12). And there’s a gift shop where, yes, you can purchase a leg lamp, as well as a leg lamp ornament for your tree.
