“I still love going here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014

There's just so much history here. It's as if you can feel the ghost of past performers. I've done the self tour and guided and I would pay the $5 more for the guided tour. Make sure you check out all the outfits. It's incredible how small these people were. I would love to take in a show next time.

“Another Must-See when visiting nashville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014

We took the backstage tour of the Ryman the last day we were visiting Nashville. I'm SO glad we did. The history of the place is great. They have some videos you watch aas the tour begins, then they take you around to the various places within. they also have some displays of costumes and instruments and the like from some of the artists who have performed there. We ae not big country music fans, but this was a very cool experience and one I am very glad we took advantage of

“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 via mobile

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.
