The only thing about this entire visit was the amount of people. However, it is well worth the trip. We went downtown, did some sight seeing, then caught a show. The performers were excellent and really got the crowd involved, unlike any other show I have been to (except The Grand Ole Opry, very similar). You will leave this show... More

In the heart of Nashville the Ryman Auditorium was a great tour. You have a choice of either self-guided or with a guide. We did the self-guided tour and enjoyed greatly.

Apart from it place in local music history, it has a unique audience ambiance and intimacy; setting aside a few seats with views blocked by pillars, every one is good with views of performers. Staff always friendly and helpful!

To see were all the greats stood and preformed. Worth the stop and price. Even after the flood a few years ago, it is in great shape.

Lots of history here at the original Grand Ole Opry location. Recommend a visit and a (self guided) tour.

We attended the Americana music festival September 2014 and the opening ceremony was held in the Ryman. Wonderful venue we were really moved by being there.

There's just so much history here. It's as if you can feel the ghost of past performers. I've done the self tour and guided and I would pay the $5 more for the guided tour. Make sure you check out all the outfits. It's incredible how small these people were. I would love to take in a show next time.

We took the backstage tour of the Ryman the last day we were visiting Nashville. I'm SO glad we did. The history of the place is great. They have some videos you watch aas the tour begins, then they take you around to the various places within. they also have some displays of costumes and instruments and the like from... More

This place is awe inspiring. To stand on the stage (albeit on what looked like a little extra 'tourist' bit added to the front for photos) where Elvis stood, The Grand Ole Opry was broadcast and The Johnny Cash Show was made was amazing. We went for a self guided tour in the afternoon and had tickets for the Jeff... More

Museum of the former Opryland home. Good museum, inexpensive, and family friendly. It is in the heart of downtown Nashville, close to all the shops, water front, and music.
