We booked a behind the curtain tour prior to the evening show. We were able to see the various dressing rooms utilized by the performers, mailbox area which house the Country Stars fan mail, and watch... read more »
Fabulous if you are a big country music fan but if you just have a passing interest it's a bit overwhelming

The tour was awesome! I could spend all day here. A lot of great history. I wish that the walls could have talked. Definitely a fun and interesting place to go. The tour was a little shorter then I had hoped for. The price was was very reasonable. I had a great time. I highly recommend doing the tour.
This was a wonderful fun night for the whole family there wasn't really a bad seat in the entire Auditorium. The entertainers were fantastic the sound quality was very good and we had a really nice night. We came early so parking was not a problem. But there was quite a bottleneck on the way out. There is a gift shop with some fun items and t-shirts and stuff like that although most was fairly pricey. The night we were there it was a sold-out show so get your tickets ahead of time.
The Grand Ole Opry was fantastic to walk around - it was really interesting finding out about all of the backstage areas, where stars come through and where their dressing rooms are. As part of the backstage tour you get to see how some of the magic happens - it was great being able to compare both the Opry and the Ryman and how different they are. As part of the tour you see how far up the wall the building was flooded and how well it has recovered which is really interesting and impressive! Would highly recommend a visit and a tour.
My wife and I visited on the 12th of August 2016. It had been on my bucketlist for a long time. We paid for tickets online and as we were travelling we couldn't print them. I had a screenshot of the barcode however, which the website said was enough. As we were going in, there were two ladies checking entrants. The first one was security, she screened our bags, the second one beeped our tickets. When I showed her the screenshot she impatiently said 'bright!' We didn't understand and assumed she meant she wanted it larger as making it brighter didn't make a lot of sense. I widened the screen so the barcode was bigger but she started yelling 'bright!' 'BRIGHT' BRIGHT! in front of hundreds of people. By then we'd changed the settings to be the maximum brightness anyway but predictably this made no difference. She couldn't be troubled speaking properly or courteous and literally the only word she said was bright - about 20 times rather than putting it into a sentence or explaining why. It was incredibly rude and embarrassing. After a while she sent us over to the office. This was our entrance to the attraction and put me in a bad mood really quickly. Not a good look to travellers to the US. Forgetting all of this however, the actual event was great. We really enjoyed the experience and would recommend it to everyone.
Awesome place! Definitely a must visit for any country music fan! Got a backstage tour and got to see the dressing rooms, lounge area, and got to walk onto the stage and stand in the Ryman circle on which nearly every country music star has stood on! Concert was amazing, got to see Keith Urban, Darius Rucker, and others. Sat in the upper level and got a great view of the stage!
