Decided to take a guided tour of the auditorium and was very impressed. The video they have beforehand was short and informative (about eleven minutes), as it gives you a crash course about the history of the auditorium. Our tour guide, Sarah, was very knowledgeable...More

While in Nashville over the past week, we were offered a mini-tour and concert at this classic American music venue. One may almost visualize the many great musicians who have graced its stage through the years. We were treated to a rising performance by the...More

We really enjoyed attending the Vince Gill bluegrass concert at the Ryman. Great sound but this was a sold out show and the church pew seating is tight. Plus the hard wood is uncomfortable. Bring a seat cushion or buy one in the gift shop....More

I saw "Lake Street Dive" at the Ryman and the sound and lighting were awesome. I really appreciated that the sound wasn't so loud and I didn't need earplugs. Only complaint is the hard old church pews were more than I could handle for 2...More

It was an interesting visited where I learned a lot about the Ryman. We did the guided tour and we got to see some of the dressing rooms that the self guided tour didn't get to see. The movie is really well done with some...More

Everyone needs to experience a show in the Ryman which is the former home of the Grand Ole Opry. All the seats are good, the acoustics are super, and the staff helpful. One can find parking which is at a premium in downtown Nashville adjacent...More

This was our first trip for the self-guided tour of the Ryman. It was a good tour and we learned a lot. But we wished they had included more music. Why not have a song or two playing while you are touring so you can...More

Unfortunately I was unable to take a tour; since the Auditorium closed at 1pm the day I was in Nashville. I had purchased tickets online 3 weeks before my visit, but when I arrived I discovered the early closing. The staff was very reluctant to...More

I've a bad back, so bad I have handicap designation. I understand I may "purchase" a pillow for the pew, but can I just bring my own?

Gosh, I really don't know the answer to your question. May I suggest calling them directly to ask?
What is the approximate length of time (on average) does it take to visit the Ryman via self-guided tour?

30 minutes is sufficient
I just went to order backstage tour tickets online and saw that there is a $4.75 service charge for each $30 ticket, which pretty much negates the $5 coupon I got by going to a show at the Grand Ole Opry last night. If I buy my tickets on site at the Ryman Auditorium, do I avoid paying this 16% service charge?
