This auditorium reeks of history. Beautifully restored . Awesome restored balcony and old church style hard wood benches ,both which are original. Wonderful to see where country music really started . My son made his own single song CD for $20.00 and it was done in a real recording sound booth ! You can get you picture taken on stage... More

Loved being able to tour at your own pace. The displays are great. Our photographer was absolutely wonderful. Love this place. Felt a real presence when stepping on that stage and having your picture taken. Wonderful.

The original home of the Grande Ollde Opry and the place where stars like Elvis sang. A must see for music historians and fans of country music. Great acoustics and a great place to see a show

Amazing place. I am not a country music fan but do not dislike it either. Visiting Ryman auditorium was a great experience and its peak is the backstage tour. The guide has lots of information and funny facts to share. reserve around 2 hours to truly enjoy this place.

An auditorium filled with history and tales of country stars, preachers and Houdini. Take the backstage tour as the guide we had was really pleasant and well informed. A pity we could not have better planned our trip to take in a performance here.

We were in Nashville with family - we are not big Country fans so decided to visit the Ryman Auditorium rather than the Hall of Fame. What a history lesson we had. The back stage tour (extra $5) was excellent we learnt so much from our guide. Even our 12 year old enjoyed the back stage tour. Keep up the... More

I was pleasantly surprised with our visit to the original Grand Ole Opry and visit to Ryman auditorium. Though not a country music buff, one still couldn't help but feel reverent and in awe of the place. If you go, be sure to take time to listen to the film as it helps to understand the rich history of the... More

The Ryman brings back memories of the smaller intimate theatre venues. You feel very close to the performance. The seats are wood pews so for any show longer than an hour I recommend bringing a pillow or blanket to sit on.

The Ryman is the birthplace of country music and the original site of the Grand Ole Opry. Every famous country artist has played here. If at all possible, attend a live concert here for a "once in a life time" experience. The acoustics are phenomenal.
