What a prime example of how to turn a historical downtown area into a entertainment center. Downtown Nashville is a pleasure to visit! So many bars and restaurants it's hard to decide where to eat. I'm a senior now but still enjoyed the lively atmosphere. There is something for everyone and it feels safe.

This is a must do if you are interested n history or music history. The history of the building was very interesting. Its renovation and resurrection from disuse is a good example of urban preservation. When you sit in the pew style benches and look at the stage, you can imagine the musical acts that performed and entertained at this... More

Been visiting here since I was a kid. The tours are more pricey but if you buy a package deal you get more for your money. The history of this place is worth it!

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

If you are going to see the sites in Nashville the best venue is still where it all started at the "Ryman" ( locals call it the church) Several years ago a bigger facility was built next to Opryland Hotel for the Grand ole Opry but It lacks the charm of the Ryman. So if you visit in December chances... 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

Interesting to see how 'things used to be', how they have evolved and to enjoy the ambiance of this historic venue.

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.
