“Amazing venue - past and present”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014

This place is awe inspiring. To stand on the stage (albeit on what looked like a little extra 'tourist' bit added to the front for photos) where Elvis stood, The Grand Ole Opry was broadcast and The Johnny Cash Show was made was amazing. We went for a self guided tour in the afternoon and had tickets for the Jeff Tweedy show that night, we were lucky enough to see the band sound-checking and had a chat with them. This building oozes history, and has the best acoustics i have ever heard.

“Former Grand Ole Opryland”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

Museum of the former Opryland home. Good museum, inexpensive, and family friendly. It is in the heart of downtown Nashville, close to all the shops, water front, and music.

“Great place but short visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

You can't not visit the Ryman when in Nashville but the standard entrance means you are all done within an hour. Lots of history but the country music hall of fame have more for your money and had a lot of similar things.

“A Must See”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

Not a big country music fan but a big fan of the TV Show "Nashville" so this was a must for me. Lovely place to visit and interesting to learn the history of the venue and to see some of the memorabilia that they have collected over the years.
