Sorry we weren’t able to experience a performance. Small nostalgic theatre. Well maintained. A must to see

We walked around saw lots of empty seats. There are more interesting locations. Maybe worth the visit in evening for a performance but not during day. Stop take a picture and move on.

We had a great experience at the Ryman. Great concert, good service. The thing I was most impressed with is we had a discrepancy on a bill and the staff at the Ryman were very professional and prompt in addressing it for me.

If you go to Nashville you really must visit the Ryman. It is true history. The venue is small, the audience is friendly, it’s like being at a neighborhood, local event. Charming

I really loved learning the history of the Ryman!! The short film at the beginning of the tour was really informative. My teenage daughter enjoyed the tour as well, although it didn’t hold the nostalgia for her like it did me. She got bored rather...More

We watched the Country Classics show at the Ryman Auditorium. I am not a Country Music fan but the show was fantastic and very entertaining. About 6 different artists performed in the 2 hour show. Highly recommend.

I would keep checking their website. I bought tickets a week before the event at the last minute, but I wouldn’t take a chance waiting until you got there due to the long lines and parking. Most events are sold out.

We did not. We were there around 2:00 on Saturday and walked right up to get tickets with no problem for the self guided tour. Now if you want to see a show, you probably need to do that in advance!
