It was turned into a museum where fans could check out the kitchen where Randy played with his food, the radio where Ralphie listened to “Little Orphan Annie,” and of course, the Old Man’s “major award.” The house had only been used for exterior shots during filming, but during the refurbishing, the interior was completely overhauled so it could be made into a near replica of the soundstage sets seen in the beloved movie.
Now fans can spend a whole night in the house, Fox 32 Chicago reported, starting from a hour after it closes to the general public until 9 a.m. the next day.
Rates for the house start at $495 per day during the summer season, but if you want to use the house during the Christmas season, it’s going to cost you a lot more than a Red Ryder BB Gun: from Dec. 15-Jan. 2, the rate jumps up to $1,995 per day.
