Who can pass up opportunity to see where Johnny met June and where bluegrass began?? So much history in this building; you can feel it. We didn’t get to experience a concert here but the tour was worth it.
Wow what a way to experience the history of music and Nashville!! The venue was amazing every! Every seat was a good one. I sat in the balcony and it felt close to the stage! I would highly recommend going to a concert at the...More
Everyone interested in history should visit this iconic building which helped to shape the musical landscape. Not being familiar with a lot of country music history (being German) , I learned a lot about music and the Ryman’s impact to it and the South in...More
We did not see a show here but, we took the self guided tour. The venue is beautiful and rich with history.
When you go in, there is an interesting video that provides background on the origin and evolution of the building.
In retrospect, I...More
The history of the place and the people who played here are legendary. And music fan owes it to themselves to be there. When we were there some of the help was odd, but that doesn't change the quality of the venue. I will be...More
Thank goodness performers of country music prevailed and this historic landmark was preserved.
Only wish we had had time to enjoy an event in this iconic and extremely well preserved landmark. Significant in the history of America music it’s easy to imagine an entertaining and...More
Great to see part of the home of country music. The venue is amazing and nice to see a historic building. The displays are informative and I like that you can walk though at your own pace. Very low key experience. Wish you could talk...More
I enjoyed seeing the Ryman and although it's self guided we listened to a guide give a short talk while showing pictures on a small screen set up on the balcony section of the auditorium. I loved hearing and reading about the history of the...More

They are usually every 15 minutes starting at 9:15 IF the backstage is available. If they have a concert that night sometimes it’s a limited amount of time given for backstage tours or there will be no backstage tours at all. However, there is so much to see including the 3 million dollar film you will see. Self guided would be a great experience as well.
you can get your picture "on stage" with the self guided. Its not exactly on the stage but right in front on a step. The guided tour only lets you walk on to the stage in a roped off area of about 10 feet in. The Grand ole... More
you can get your picture "on stage" with the self guided. Its not exactly on the stage but right in front on a step. The guided tour only lets you walk on to the stage in a roped off area of about 10 feet in. The Grand ole Opry lets you get completely onto the stage , take pics, and walk around after the show if you buy the backstage pass. Totally worth it if you are going to a show. Hope that helps enjoy!
