This was the very last stop in Nashville! Well worth the stop. We liked the history and the 11 minute movie was really well produced! Go get your pic snapped on stage and buy it for ten bucks.

This is a beautiful performance are venue which I believe was originally a church. We did not tour the interior, but we certainly would have if we had spent more time in Nashville. Better yet, try and catch a performance there. Worth walking by either way.

Awesome and full of great history. We were very impressed with all the restoration and detail. Felt like we were back in time.

I am not a country music buff, but even I loved the backstage tour at the Ryman. This is the birthplace of Country and our guide took us back stage to dressing rooms used by Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Loretta Lynn, Steve Martin, Bob Hope, Elvis, Gene Autry, etc. There was a lot of neat history about the building, its...

did not do the tour. Instead, did the real deal and saw a show here. Has been on my bucket list as it is one of the best live venues in the US, according to Rolling Stone.

This was part of a Grayline tour. It was interesting. Self guided tour and had a few videos to watch. It had some nice displays. Only takes about 30 minutes.

I loved this place! We went shortly after it opened, (9am) & wasn't too busy. It told of the history of the place, even before the Grand Ole Opry came there. Right downtown too so very accessible. I'm glad they didn't get rid of it. While we were there, Rob Thomas's roadies were setting up for him to play that... More

The tour will give you a great in-sight to the origins of the Ryman and is very informative. I had taken the tour before and they have changed it since I was here last. They now have a very impressive multi-media orientation movie that gets your tour started. We choose the self guided tour and am glad we did. As... More

Several years ago we went to a performance at the Ryman. History just oozes from the place. This time while we were in Nashville we did the backstage tour, dressing rooms, etc. We learned of the many stars that had performed on the stage, i.e Bob Hope, Helen Hayes and many country stars. It is well worth the time and... More
