We rent on the self guided tour. It starts with a video in the theatre. You then go into the auditorium. It was very interesting learning about the history of the building and Nashville. I recommend visiting!

If you are a country music fan or just a music fan, it's a must see. We did the self-guided tour. We enjoyed learning about the history of the building and seeing all displays but I think all the extras that come with the guided tour would be well worth the price.

If you're in Nashville you really should go to the Ryman for a tour or show. The acoustics are great! My mom and I snagged tickets to the Opry classics last minute for a really great deal. In general tickets are not that expensive and pretty much all the seats have a good view. Its a cool piece of Nashville... More

I feel compelled to review this venue again and to downgrade my rating. This place is amazing to tour. An incredible, indelible, unforgettable experience. Definitely worth seeing the inside. EXCEPT! There is a recent development to this iconic piece of history. They have added a monstrous piece of cheap plastic and cement entryway to the beautiful old brickwork. They did... More

My family (2 adults and 2 kids) enjoyed this tour and learning about the history of this building! This was our first visit to Nashville and we are not huge country music fans but we really enjoyed this tour. Dolly Parton was giving a concert the night we toured and her crew was setting up the stage and was just... More

The video at the beginning is informative and then you take a self-guided tour of the auditorium. A person can really take their time and see many neat pictures and information of the tour.

A must see in Nashville. There is a short movie that tell's the story of the original Grand Ole Opry, The Ryman Auditorium. Interesting! Pretty inside. It used to be a church, so there are stained glass windows at the back of the auditorium. Fully renovated. Self guided tour ticket is $20, guided is $27.50. Worth it if you're interested... More

Well worth a stop in whether you like Country music or not. The self-guided tour was a great option to walk through the auditorium, see exhibits, listen to videos and sit in the seats. You can have your photo taken on the stage. Photos are free if you take them with your camera, $10 if they take it and print... More

First of all we had to pay very expensive parking because the theater has no parking available. We paid $25 for about 4 hours. It's $20 for 3 hours. Then it's $20 a person to visit theater. They have a pretty nice film they show you which explains the history and then you see the inside of the theater and... More
