We attended the Americana music festival September 2014 and the opening ceremony was held in the Ryman. Wonderful venue we were really moved by being there.

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.

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

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.

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.
