History

Great to see a place that has so much history behind it. The back stage tour allows you to see the dressing rooms of some of the older members of the Grand Ole Opry.

We paid the entrance fee for a self guided tour, listened to a short video and historical talk, then walked around enjoying the displays and the amazing architecture of this incredible building. We opted to have our photo taken onstage complete with guitar and banjo. It gives a small sense of what it would be like to play there.

Attended the G. Allman show June 28, first time to visit the Ryman. The show was great and the acoustics (we sat in the balcony, section 11) were amazing. Interestingly, seating for the Ryman is on church pews not individual chairs. While not padded they were comfortable for the 3+ hours of the concert. The place is rich in music... More

Loved the history around this landmark. Great indoor activity to escape heat. Nice introductory video and pricing was not bad at $18.00 which includes backstage tour.

My husband and I took a quick, very enjoyable three-day bus trip to Nashville in June. Ryman Auditorium was the highlight of the trip for both of us. With its amazing history, it's unbelievable to think this incredible building was at one time going to be torn down. Praise the Lord it was spared. Neither my husband nor I knew... More

The Ryman Auditorium is a must see while in Nashville for everyone not just country music fans. It was wonderful to see the center of country music and to learn about the history of not only the building but of country music and the Opry's influence which is still present today. There were several displays of country royalty to include... More

It was exciting to see the original Opry stage. We liked seeing costumes of performers such as Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner. We learned that the acoustics of the auditorium are outstanding. It was fascinating to hear the history of how the Opry got started.

We enjoyed seeing this historical country tradition. They have taken great pride in restoration of this lovely building to maintain the history of our American Country Music Industry.

We had tickets for Dwight Yoakam and he was fabulous! I also did a separate tour of the Ryman, which was very interesting. This stately building has been home to so many famous entertainers through the years that it's incredible to just be in it.
