Castle Noel: Huge Christmas Museum

Plan on about two hours for the guided tour, which is aren't allowed to just walk around in there. Prepare to be amazed. The tour weaves in and out of the building, up and down stairs, through a vortex and simulated Santa chimney-squeeze. You'll be snowed on and sent flying down the Ralphie slide. Even the dour preteen in the family was in awe!

Photos were encouraged. Ticket includes Alien mini golf experience next door.

Cousin Eddie's RV.

Biggest Year-Round Christmas Museum in the U.S.

My favorite place in Ohio! The Christmas movie memorabilia is fantastic! Make sure you slide down the slide from A Christmas Story and get your picture taken in front of Cousin Eddie's RV!!

Slide replica from A Christmas Story.

Biggest Year-Round Christmas Museum in the U.S.

Castle Noel makes you feel like a little kid. Don't wait until Christmas to visit. It is in my top three best Ohio attractions! They have costumes and props from The Grinch, Elf and many more. Cousin Eddie's RV is my favorite!

The RV from "Christmas Vacation" (1989) is a rusting monster parked outside the museum. The RV was vandalized in Sept. 2014, yet still retains most of its charm.
