We went on the guided backstage tour which provided a great deal of background on the Ryman as well as peaks into a couple of dressing rooms. We also attended the Country Classics show which was very good. Especially if you like 'old' country music.

Can't visit Nashville without visiting the Ryman. Interesting exhibits and interesting place. Much more intimate than the new Opry.

Enjoyed the historical information. They were filming the ACM Honor Awards that day, so closed at noon, nothing was posted, so glad we made it early!

We saw a concert there which was awesome. However, the air conditioning was intermittent and made for some uncomfortable moments.

Husband and I purchased the 1.5 hour walking tour of the Ryman through Gray Line Tours (at trolley building across from Country Music Hall of Fame). Our tour was at 10:30 (get there 30 minutes early to ensure you get registered-believe took took 14 people, max). We had the best tour guide, Danielle, a friendly, and very knowledgeable young lady... More

Enjoyed seeing the Ryman...seeing the dressing rooms in the backstage tour made it more meaningful. Amazing to see and hear all who performed here.

We had not really planned our trip to Nashville very well as this was simply a starting point on our way to Charlotte. The city was fantastic in terms of its treasures like the Ryman Auditorium and Grand Ole Opry. We toured the Ryman and then came back for an evening concert.

Everything was worth the price we paid to tour this historic auditorium. Got to see Loretta Lynn's original dress that she made & wore when she performed her first song & the same dress that Sissy Spacek wore in the movie Coal Miner's Daugher.

The Ryman is a classic place if you're a fan of the older generation of country music. I grew up listening to the music and it was very interesting to go and see the history behind what my Mom and Dad loved to listen too.

I enjoyed the music. The seats we had were not very good and the benches were hard and uncomfortable. This wasn't my best place to attend in Nashville
