Wonderful show. We saw oak ridge boys and other country musicians. A must do in downtown Nashville. Beautiful building inside and out. Great Lulu cafe available for a bite to eat before the show. Great great show!

It's a small venue but a great atmosphere. It is a fun time. More restrooms are needed so go ahead of time. You do sit on hard wooden pews so if that is a problem they do sell cushions out front.

If you are a true music fan, you must see a show at this venue. The acoustics are sublime and the sense of history throughout the building is palpable!

I like the history behind the Ryman but the tour isn't worth it. It starts with a video about its history, which is fun and interesting. After that you can walk around the auditorium. There are a few small exhibits with information and costumes about performers. You can take pictures. You can also arrange to have your picture taken on... More

We live an hour and half away....we are soooo lucky!!! I am completely spoiled for any other concert venue!! The most memorable concerts of my life have been here Bc it is so intimate and special. You have never seen a band in person until you experience one at the Ryman!

Attended the Thursday evening performance, with the Oak Ridge Boys, and it was all it could have been. What a terrific event, the performers were amazing. We were up close and personal in the front of the auditorium, and from start to finish it was a good experience. The only thing that made the event less than what it should... More

The self guided tour is just ok, but seeing the Ryman is a MUST. Wish we could have done the backstage tour, but there were none due to performances during our visit. Such history...just wonderful.

We saw Larry The Cable Guy here. It was a fun night. You can duck in for a quick eat and drink pre show and then watch the show, concert. A really great venue easily accessible by car, uber or shuttle.

While passing through I felt I had to see the mother church, so called for lots of reasons I was to discover. It was started by a river boat captain as a church, it was the epicenter of bluegrass and country & western music and has a great story to tell. We took the back stage tour and while pricey,...
