We were only in Nashville for 1 night and we weren't huge Country music fans - but we just had to do this when we were there. We tried the Grand Ole Opry but there was no show that evening so we went to Rymans which was an earlier home of the Opry before it relocated. We were lucky enough... More

Great place, be a fantastic place to see a concert or show. Feels like something with a huge amount of history, which is rare in the USA ;) I'm joking. Great story about how and why it was built.

Did not like that you had to have a $10 picture taken before you could take your own pictures on stage. Nice landmark building.

We did the self guided tour. Would have chose the guided if we would have had more time. We were at the Ryman for less than an hour which was plenty of time to read and explore. There are a lot of displays and things to read. Short video to watch. The pews are amazing.

It was our first time in Tennessee and Nashville was a great surprise. We had such a wonderful time there March 17th. They really know how to keep the audience involved in the entertainment part of the show. Lots of laughter and Fun! Wonderful show and entertainment, great atmosphere!

This Auditorium is pure Nashville. Old and young alike will love the line up at Ryman! Small theatre, so you are right in the action. Class acts every night. We will definitely visit again!

This tour is a must see. This was our first trip to Nashville. And the tour fantastic. The tour guide gave us great information. He made us feel like we could walk in the same shoes as the performers did. It was great to see behind the scenes.

It was awesome just walking thru the Ryman and seeing the mementos of its past history. We had our picture taken on the stage which was fun and a super keepsake. A must see for country music fans.
