|About these ratings|
There's no better place to start absorbing Nashville's musical heritage than the Ryman Auditorium. It's no longer home to the Grand Ole Opry, but the auditorium continues to host such famed musical artists as Yo-Yo Ma and Jon Bon Jovi. Take a tour of the auditorium's stage and get a glimpse behind the scenes of this legendary music venue. One TripAdvisor user writes: "I paid an additional $ (3 or 5 dollars) to attend a backstage tour and it was worth it to see the dressing rooms-hear some stories of then unknown artists trying to make it big."
Located in the heart of Downtown Nashville, the Ryman Auditorium is open every day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Basic tours cost approximately $13 for adults and $6 for children ages 4 to 11 (there is an additional charge for the Backstage Tour Option). You should also check the Ryman Auditorium website for a full list of upcoming concerts.
