I learned quite a bit about this building when we did the tour. I had seen two shows before and thought that I knew a lot about the building, but it turns out I did not. We did the self-guided version that set us back $20 each. I think that we spent just over an hour looking at everything and... More

Went for Opry at the Ryman. Sat in the balcony center about half way up. Great acoustics and more intimate than the Opry in Opryland. You can tell people have gotten bigger since it was built. Sat next to a guy who was over 6 ft tall and his legs didn't fit sitting straight so he sat angled the whole... More

Seeing this building was an absolute thrill! I wanted to see it because of its history, but my wife and I were both shocked by how well done, and informative, the movie was at the very beginning of the tour. It was entertaining, and informational, providing so many insights to the history of the place that no one could ever... More

My wife and I took a "backstage" tour of the Ryman in early February 2016. The Grand Ole Opry uses the Ryman Auditorium for several months each winter before returning to Opryland (current home of the Grand Ole Opry). The Ryman Auditorium was used for the Grand Ole Opry (and other shows) until 1974. The tour takes approximately one hour... More

An amazing experience. Loved sitting in the Pews. Walked up and had no trouble getting tickets the evening of the event.

...our 50th anniversary fell on Saturday, January 23, and we decided to celebrate in Nashville, one of our favorite cities. The Ryman is always appropriate for us, and during January The Grand Ole Opry radio show moved back to the Ryman for its live broadcasts. We braved the snow accumulations, and were treated with one of Country Music`s Grande Dames,... More

Not a country western fan but enjoyed touring this auditorium. We did the back stage tour and found it very interesting, walked the stage and enjoyed the stories about famous singers. Our guide had a lot of information and interesting stories.

Have to admit that I'm not a huge country music fan and $20 to go look at a building sounded expensive but it is money and time well spent as the Ryman is Nashville in terms of it's history and connection to the musical vibe of the city. Nice video presentation of the building's past followed by self-guided tour with... More
