Talk about a wonderful hidden gem. We went as a filler between other activities and were awestruck at the history and authenticity of this showplace. Don't miss this place. If you like music and history, you will love Ryman Auditorium.

This place is simply magical. You enter a whole new era the minute you walk into the building. The history is rich there. If you like music at all, you will appreciate this venue. As a top ranking acoustic venue in the world, this place is a must-see for your favorite artist. There is literally not a bad seat in... More

Whatever type of show you see, country music, rock, spoken word, there is not a bad seat in the place. Great sound. Enjoy the show.

I love going to concerts at the Ryman. There's not a bad seat in the house, and since it's a small venue, you really get close to the performers no matter where you sit. Parking is easy and convenient.

The Ryman is gorgeous and its place in Nashville and Country Music history is well document. While I would never discourage anyone from a tour, if you are tall, chubby, or arthritic, this is NOT the place to enjoy a concert. My husband is 6'3", average built and I am 5'8" and tubby. The concert we attended at the Ryman... More

Not too big. If you cant get a floor seat in front of the upper balcony, then go to the balcony. Actually the balcony is my favorite. Very relaxed!!

What a history - and it is still "The Tabernacle" Great music and entertainment for everyone. After all, it is MUSIC CITY USA and the Ryman is the core or heart of it. Renovated yet retains its charm. Take a tour or just walk around on your own. Fun for the family and "out of towners". Within easy walking distance... More
