You're considering NOT going here? You can't go to Nashville without seeing the Ryman. Even if you don't like country music, it's a historic and beautiful theatre. You can feel the ghosts of Minnie Pearl and friends stomping through the theatre. GO see it!!!!

Very nice experience. A lot of history has passed through here. It was not open for tours when we went but still a good time

We had our picture taken on stage holding guitars. That was especially fun. The auditorium is currently under construction, so that did hamper our tour a bit.

Learned a lot. Not a big country music fan, but I think everybody would enjoy the backstage tour. The tour guide was excellent.

Take the backstage tour with a guide - well worth it. Very interesting - has lots of stories to tell - well worth the extra $5 to do this if not you are on your own and won't see the backstages of the theatre

Very good self tour , really liked learning of the variety of performers this historic venue attracted. If there is a big crowd outside walk straight through it's only the coach tours getting sorted out and makes it look busier than it is.

Wow! The history is amazing, to think who has performed there! The historical information is interesting and better purchase concert tickets to a performance to truly enjoy the atmosphere and venue.

We went as part of a tour of Nashville - the video was interesting and gave a good history of the Ryman. Enjoying being there where so many stars have performed! A few displays were available in the rear of the auditorium.

Seeing the former Grand Ole Opry was an experience compared to what it is today. Country music fans revere their older performers and the forum that used to house them. What a special place

The self guided tour is good, it was nice to go at your own pace. There is a face lift going on right now, we plan on going back when finished
