Awesome!

have done the Ryman tour twice now & will never get tired of it. Such a wonderful part of history. Make sure you take the backstage tour to see the dressing rooms.

This place is amazing. If you stand in the seating area or balcony and remain quiet, it's like you can hear the original Opry members playing...shhhhh...just listen!

You have to go see the Ryman if you come to Nashville. This is where history was made. Most of it is untouched, old seating, stage, lighting. Well worth seeing.

This really is the best venue in Nashville to see a concert and I've seen a bunch (The Doobie Bros., John Prine, ZZ Top, Ringo Starr, just to name a few). They have decent concessions (the chicken fingers were wonderful!) and you can buy adult beverages in several places. Pair all of that with amazing acoustics and the history involved... More

I have been to the wonderful Ryman many many times in my life to see everyone from Tedeschi Trucks Band, Govt Mule, Carlos Santana and many many more. This is a precious venue where many Grand Ole Opry greats performed like my favorite Patsy Cline. Located in walkable distance from lower broadway. Wonderful acoustics, great visually from most any seats... More

We were in town for a conference and when we saw that Diana Ross was coming as part of the Valentines Day weekend, I got tickets! We saw Diana Ross at Ryman, it was an amazing venue and wonderful experience. It was a bucket list item and now can say we have seen Diana Ross and she was amazing! Thank... More

This was my first trip to Nashville and plan on making it an annual visit ! The Ryman self guided tour was all that was available but our group of 4 truly enjoyed it. We were guided upstairs to start with a state of the art narration of the beginning story of how the Ryman Auditorium and Nashville became known... More

If you love country music and bluegrass you should love a visit to the Ryman. Spend the bucks and take the back stage tour where you will see the dressing rooms and great old photographs along the hallways. At the same time, learn some interesting tidbits from the guides. An interesting time line display shows the history. There also some... More
