Ryman Auditorium reviews
I didn't know anything about the Ryman going in but after the introductory movie and the tour I learned so much and was in awe of this building filled with so much history.

The Ryman was closed the Monday we were there(we think it was because Naomi Judd’s tribute was the night before) . It is a beautiful, unassuming building where the original Grand Ole Opry was held...

The Ryman Auditorium self-guided tour was awesome. They start with a really nice 3D-type video that gives you the history of the Ryman. Then you walk around the beautiful, historic auditorium. Having your picture on the stage included with your ticket was great, and the print was easy to pick up in the gift shop. The little exhibits they had throughout the place were cool. They also had the best gift shop out of all the country music museums that I visited in Nashville. I bought my ticket online in advance, but I easily could have just gone to the window on the day of my visit.
This is an incredible venue for a show. It was my first time attending a show there. Such an incredible place! The Mother Church did not disappoint. The rich history of the building, and all the musical history there is amazing! You must take the opportunity to see any show there. It's absolutely awesome!
