Great to see a historic theater so well preserved, restored and taken care of. It was originally a church in the round and the original curved pews are still in place. Didn't get to see a show there, but it would be quite an experience.

Beautiful old style historic theater. The feel of the hall takes you back in time as you look around and think about the famous entertainers that have played here. Unfortunately a fair number of seats have limited views of the entire stage. Watch your footing as you negotiate the steps inside the dimly lit auditorium with dark carpeting.

This is a beautiful theater but the history is what made it a nice visit. Watch the short video then look at all the displays. If you like country music, this is a must see.

Small venue I would say 2500. Remember there is obstructive views and a lot of seats on side. Sound is wonderful though and you can take cameras. Thank you Ryman after customers buy tickets you allow them to walk to stage to take pictures I loved that! 1/2 block from Broadway. They have shows all the time so check them... More

The Ryman is THE place to catch a concert. If you are looking for an intimate venue with awesome acoustics this is the place you need to be.

The exhibits are nowhere near as elaborate as in the Hall of Fame but the Ryman is definitely worth a visit. I just wish the film shown would have been longer.fascinating history of the building.

A venue steeped in history and with very good staff. A very good value trip and with lots to see. If you are in any way interested in country music, you owe it to yourself to go here.

Not only is the theater beautiful, but the history behind it is very interesting. If you take the complete tour you get to go into the dressing rooms and see some great pictures. During certain times there are concerts going on at the Ryman, so check the schedule.
