Took the tour. A number of interesting facts about the Ryman and lots of information about the building as well as the entertainers and persons that attended the venues over the years. Was nice to be able to stand were the famous country music icons stood. If you are a country music fan you really need to go here.

We took the tour here since we couldn't get in to see a show. It is a beautiful place. The tour is OK, but if you can see a show, I would recommend that instead. You can still see the place that way.

A wonderful venue and impressive place to visit! The history alone is worth a trip here. We did the self-guided tour in the afternoon and also saw a show on Friday evening. The seats are great no matter where you sit, although they are the original pews, so no comfy padding! Known for the wonderful acoustics, it is awesome to... More

The tour guide was knowledgeable, spoke clearly and loud enough to hear, and clearly loves what she does.

You can't properly do Nashville without a tour of the Ryman. They showed us all the backstage dressing rooms and gave us some great stories. there is a super gift shop and there are more museum-like display cases of country star attire and memorabilia. My favorite is the Loretta Lynn - hand-made by Loretta Lynn - dress that Sissy Spacek... More

Historic, interesting and fun with all the scuttlebutt about all the Opry stars. Great to stand on the stage where these famous musicians performed. A great way to spend an afternoon in Nashville.

This is where it all began and had great history within its walls. If only they could speak. Great back stage tour. Only thing better would have been if our timing coincided with a performance.

My husband and I went to the Ryman to see David Gray. It was wonderful - I think that there isn't a bad seat in the house. Th acoustics were great. And ... there was something about sitting in that church pew thinking about all of the historic performers who had been on that stage. Marvelous place to go!
