  • If you are visiting Nashville, taking a tour is a must. My recommendation is take the back stage tour. Totally worth it. Tour guides are informative and friendly. All staff are willing to chat and share their stories about The Ryman. We just said Hi to Keith and it turned into a half hour conversation! Great stories. If you are talking the back stage tour, try and do it on a non event day. You get to walk over the stage and see much more. Awesome. One of the highlights of our trip! So much history
  • Seat spacing is tight sometimes And spacious on others. If you look at the original cutouts for the seat numbers you can see where the try to add a few extra seats in the row. People are not getting any smaller, including myself. Sound is usually good unless the sound has an instrument or background vocal higher than the lead singer, but that is on the bands sound engineer. Some views down on the main floor may be blocked by poles, so try to check out the view when buying tickets.
  • I took the self-guided tour, and it's probably not worth it. If you're just going to check out everything on your own. It's probably best to just wait until you catch a show. It's a beautiful venue and super-historical. It is very self-congratulatory, and it clearly focuses way too much on stars since reopening. They loved pointing out that Widespread Panic performed there. I was also surprised that the staff member could not name any of the early preachers from it's early days. There was a timeline wall that answered my questions, but it was a relevant thing and I would have loved to have gotten an answer from the staff. It's a cool place, but if you're there for the tour, pay to get the guided backstage tour.
  • This was a trip you could make as long or short as you wished. We did the non guided tour and started with the history show in the little theatre. This was short but way way better than we expected. After this you can hang out in the aim theatre and look at the exhibits, which are interesting even if country is not completely your thing. I really enjoyed it and even the youngest managed to keep it together...
  • This is the best place to see a show in Nashville. I like sitting in the balcony area. Be sure to walk around and check out the hatch show prints on the walls. They offer tours, but you'll need to check on that ahead of time.
