  • We came to Nashville on a whim and didn't plan any activities in advance but conveniently we were staying by the Ryman and there happened to be a show on that night. Of course it was sold out official...  more »

  • This is one of the must-do Nashville experiences. We attended the final Winter Opry show of the season. Delightful. Our seats were in the lower balcony, which put us closer to the stage and performers...  more »

  • I would recommend a tour of the Ryman if you are visiting Nashville. It starts with a superb introductory video that tells you about the rich history of the Ryman. The video is one of the highlights of the tour as it really immerses you in the atmosphere of the place. From there, it is a self guided tour through the auditorium. You can even take some time out to sit in the pews or get your photo on the stage. Expect to spend about 1-1.5 hours here.
  • Awesome historical venue. I love the fact that they still use it to this day. It has a lot of wonderful events here and they make it as if it's up to date, like their arena neighbors. The staff are really nice, they give tours when there's not anything going on. It's really cool. Definitely a place you need to go to if you happen to be in town.
  • From you moment you walk in you know that this is going to be an amazing few hours! If you love country music....either Country and Western, New Country or Country Rock... You know you will enjoy this visit. We had the stars walk around your, we got to stand on THE stage, and sit in the pews. There is so much to see, so much to learn and about a million photo opportunities! No visit to Nashville would be complete without going to the Ryman.
  • Played here a handful of times now with Keith & Kristyn Getty. It’s a very special room. The audiences are amazing here too. Always ready to applaud a solo and get involved. Great crew, great sound. Does this place even need a review? It is THEE venue in the nation.
  • Magical place inside... so much music history to consider. The original wooden pew style seating is not the most comfy, but the configuration is good so that there are really no bad seats., and the sound is pretty great. Security regimen for getting inside is a bit arduous and had us waiting around unprotected in the pouring rain til we were drenched; so if you parked nearby and think you just have a quick dash to get inside, think again and dress apprropriate to the weather including an umbrella, if needed. Concessions, including alcohol, ate readily available and can be taken to the seats. An elevator is also available for those who need it. No dedicated parking but plenty of lots nearby - parking apps make it easy to locate and even reserve. Exit is through the gift shop, of course, but who wouldn't want a souvenir? 😀

Where to stay in Nashville

Go to the city center to choose from a selection of hotels lining the streets parallel to the Cumberland River, where most options fall into the mid-range or luxury category and offer swimming pools. Just a stone's throw to the north is the Arts District, where you can stay in a similarly luxurious hotel and find yourself in the thick of the city's live music scene. If you're after great food and trendy cafes, look farther north to the regenerated neighborhood of Germantown.
