I have done the Ryman tour twice before the last visit. The third time was when I found out there was a backstage tour also. We did that and enjoyed it thoroughly. The guide was so informative and friendly. It was a great experience and we will do it again! The gift shop is nice too, and the location is... More

Not sure what to expect but we really enjoyed the history and the architecture of the building. Definitely a must see, even if you just do the general admission. Everyone who works/ volunteers there is very knowledable.

Backstage tour was very enjoyable. Fascinating historical facts. We did a tour one day and came back for entertainment on a Thursday night. Enjoyed both immensely.

It was really cool to stand inside the theatre and take it all in. The displays were interesting and the intro video well done, but when you compare it with the Opry's backstage tour it really doesn't stack up. We did this as part of the All Access Pass, so I wasn't too disappointed, but I think I would've been... More

Went to the Bluegrass show. Love every single minute of it. It was amazing. Bring pillows, the benches are rough!

This is where The Grand Ol' Opry started and was for years. It is an awed filled experience. They show a film that is the history of the place. Do not miss this gem in Nashville!

If you want to spend extra money to see 5 dressing rooms that were not part of the original Opry and all look same except some pics on the wall do it.. It is not worth the time or money

What a beautiful place! So much history, we took the backstage tour which I highly recommend. To think of all the famous people that have been in there gave me chills. You get to visit the dressing rooms, which I was surprised were somewhat small, and even get to walk on stage. Enjoyed this tour a lot, it is a... More

After watching TV as kid with my dad, this was one of the shows he loved. Never had been to Nashville before so decided to take the Ryman tour. We did the self tour and took all the time we wanted. Even watched the informative video a couple of times. Such a grand piece of history. If we could have... More

The history alone is amazing. Seated inside the 'Ryman' for a concert is an experience you don't want to miss. The church pews and stained glass windows / they also offer tours. Only place I will attend any type of music venue....
