The House from A Christmas Story, now restored to its movie splendor, is open year round to the public for tours and overnight stays. Directly across the street from the House is the Museum, which features original props, costumes and memorabilia from the film, as well as hundreds of rare behind-the-scenes photos. Among the props and costumes are the toys from the Higbee’s window, Randy’s snowsuit, the chalkboard from Miss Shields’ classroom and the family car. After reliving the movie at Ralphie’s house don’t forget to visit the museum gift shop for your own Major Award Leg Lamp and other great movie memorabilia. You can even shop through our online gift shop here. Proceeds from the gift shop and overnight stays help support and maintain The House from A Christmas Story.

The Bumpus House

The Bumpus House is located just to the left of the House. It is the fictional home to Ralphie’s hillbilly neighbors, the Bumpuses, and their 785 smelly hound dogs. The Bumpus Hounds are famous for harassing Ralphie’s Old Man and stealing the Christmas turkey. The motif for the interior of The Bumpus House is vintage eclectic in a 1940’s style with a slightly hillbilly Bumpus flare while still providing all the modern amenities.

The Bumpus House has two accommodations: The “Hound Dog Haven” suite on the first floor can accommodate up to 4 guests per night and the “Stolen Turkey” suite, which encompasses the second and third floors, can accommodate up to 6 guests per night. Guests can also rent the entire house. A first-floor dual access door allows for the whole house to be rented. Rates start at $195 per night and vary with the season. The first-floor suite is handicap accessible with ramp access and accessible features inside.



The House from A Christmas Story has two free parking lots and free street parking on the streets in front of and directly adjacent to the property. The first parking lot is located directly to the left of the House. The second parking lot is located to right of the Gift Shop.
