During my Christmas quest this week, I stumbled across another museum and this one is a full size tribute to "A Christmas Story". Talk about full scale; in 2005 the actual house where the movie was filmed, was purchased on Ebay by a super fan. Fundraising and restoration happened almost immediately and he was able to open the house and museum to the public in 2006.
You can tour A Christmas Story House and Museum year around. The museum features original props, costumes and memorabilia from the film, as well as hundreds of rare behind-the-scenes photos. They also have activities throughout the year, including several activities for Christmas in July.
If you visit their page, I suggest you check out several of the videos on the front page. Their is a great video piece by NBC about the purchase of the house. If you are a fan, I'm telling you, the museum page has endless amounts of information and trivia related to A Christmas Story.
If you are looking to purchase something related to A Christmas Story, they have a shop directly across the street from the museum or you can purchase directly online. The Red Rider Leg Lamps Store has everything all in one place. Anything you want, can be found in that store. Wow...it's endless!
In my quest, I also found details on A Christmas Story: The Musical. From what I've read, it received great reviews and was nominated for several Emmys this past year. It toured in both 2012 and 2013, so check back later in the year and see if it will be in your area this year.
