My last visit was over a year ago, before the recent additions. The only problem I had was the bathrooms are too far away from the hall. that and the price of drinks (even soft drinks) although that's the norm at any venue.

We went to the Ryman to see Toto. It was our first experience there, and we will definitely be back. What a unique and interesting venue. All of the history makes it a perfect place to go, even if you aren't going to see a show. But getting to experience a performance in this old church turned Grand Old Opry... More

Went to tour the Ryman on a HOT July day, so the ac was so welcomed! Our tour guide, Joe, was extremely patient (with my funny wife) and informative. What a great, historic place! Wish we had been able to see a performance in that hall.

We went to the ryman for a tour the morning we were set to fly back home. We felt like we had enough of county music history and museums, so we were planning to skip this, but woke up early and decided to do one last tour before we left! So glad that we did!!!! It holds so much history... More

It's wonderful to be inside such an iconic, historic building but the acoustics are the best part. This venue is small enough to feel intimate and there is no bad seat in the house.

My first time at the Ryman Auditorium and all the stories did not prepare me for the experience. As a lover of all music, not just country, I have an appreciation for the history of this venue. I recently saw Steven Tyler and Loving Mary Band. It was phenomenal! My daughter and I loved it so much we found ourselves... More

We attended a concert here and the sound was not nearly as good as we had expected. When we played back video that we had recorded, the sound was much better than during the live concert. But the auditorium is beautiful and just being there is special for country music fans!

The Ryman Auditorium is a must see for anyone who even remotely likes country music and is even a great tour for those who aren't really into it. There are a couple different tours you can purchase: A self-guided tour and a guided tour which is the only access into the dressing rooms area. We wanted to see it all... More

This is a perfect place for a concert. Small venue, with incredible acoustics. It sets a perfect stage for an intimate show. Plus it's history. Artifacts are located through out.
