Taking a tour of the Ryman seems like an obvious choice, but the experience ended up being much richer than we were giving it credit for. It really is a Nashville gen. What a fascinating history this place has!. We had no idea of the range of talent the Ryman has seen and how close it came to disappearing all... More

Had an amazing time seeing little big town play at the Ryman. Great venue... not a bad seat in the house. They played for two hours and showcased their new album top to bottom. Amazing experience

You go for the history of this building and what it once was and who went through those doors. $20USD has a gift shop, self guided tour, don't need too long to go though it all.

We started our 5 day trip to Nashville with a tour of the Ryman and ended with a show at the grand ole opry! A great way to educate our 12 and 15 years old in the music we love ( and grew up with). Brought back a flood of memories- listening to country music as a young adult....there I... More

If you like music, and music lore, you MUST go to a show at the legendary Ryman, original home of the Grand Old Opry. Acoustics are excellent--we saw Shovels and Rope here and they melted our faces off! Shoot, even if some guy humming into a Good-n-Plenty box is playing the only night you're in town, GO. On exclusive two-night... More

We have been to many concerts over the last two years and this has been my favorite venue. Nashville is already so much fun and the Ryman makes it even better. So much history you can feel the stars from the past. It's Small and intimate and easy to navigate.
