We attended a concert there and we were very impressed with the closeness of the place. Music was out of this world. One thing, remember to bring a cushion to sit on, the pews get hard. Lol!!!

I am so glad that we visited the Ryman. We did the self guided Tour and were not disappointed. Also had tickets for the concert featuring bluegrass music by Rhonda Vincent. Wow and night to remember. Also saw - Jesse McReynolds - Bobby Osborne & Sonny Osborne - Mac Wiseman. Well worth the money!!! Concert went over 3 hours long... More

My favorite part of visiting Nashville is going inside the Ryman and just absorbing the atmosphere. If you can walk around in the Ryman and NOT get chills thinking about the amazing talent that has graced that stage you aren't really a country music fan!

The Ryman is in the heart of Downtown Nashville so there really is no excuse for not popping into to see where it all began for the Opry. The wall of posters bares testament to the Stella array of stars who have performed at this venue. We had the good fortune to see a live show - Noel Gallagher -... More

Great acoustics. Iconic area, and could not ask more. Seats could be better as they are many with blocked views. Adequate staff to help.

The movie presentation was excellent. It was amazing to learn about the history of this auditorium. Even my six year old was very curious and was patient thru the presentation. We took the self guided tour, the entry fee was $20 per person.

I'm so glad we toured the Ryman. We opted for the backstage tour also. A lot of great history. I thought the video at the beginning would be blah, but even that surprised me. Very well put together.

An amazing tour including the country stars dressing rooms and the original Oprynstage. We even had a CD made of a song we recorded. Fun!
