We triple-dog dare ya!
When it comes to holiday movies, none hits heavier on the nostalgia than the endlessly quotable, 1983 classic, A Christmas Story. See the film like never before by touring the iconic house, presently on display!
The holidays come but once a year. How are you celebrating this year? Decorating the house? Eating all the cookies in sight? Binge-watching the Hallmark channel? If channeling the holiday spirit is your intention, you can do better than watching TV. The iconic house from A Christmas Story is open for visitors and overnight stays.
“A Christmas Story House, now restored to its movie splendor, is open year round to the public for tours and overnight stays,” the website reads. “Directly across the street from the House is A Christmas Story Museum, which features original props, costumes and memorabilia from the film, as well as hundreds of rare behind-the-scenes photos.”
The Christmas Story house is open for visits every day of the week from 10 am – 7 pm Sunday through Thursday and 10 am – 9 pm Friday and Saturday. Tours run every half hour beginning at 10:15 am. All visitors over the age of 2 are required to wear masks at all times when inside. Tickets are priced at $15 for seniors (60+), $13 for children (3–12), $10 for children under the age of 3.
Overnight stays are available in both The Christmas Story house as well as two rooms in the neighboring Bumpus house – you know the one.
“Spend the night reliving your favorite movie and sleeping in Ralphie and Randy’s beds. Overnight guests have use of A Christmas Story House’s private third floor loft for the entirety of their stay and use of the whole house from an hour after closing until 9 am the following day.”
Prices vary by date, with a starting rate of $445 at The Christmas Story House (December 24 – 25), $245 for the Stolen Turkey Suite, and $195 for the Hound Dog Haven Suite at the Bumpus’s.
