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 contemporary acts like Earth, Wind & Fire and Hunter Hayes. Recent visitors suggest opting for a tour to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the legendary music venue. One TripAdvisor user writes: "This was like being in the hallowed halls of any great entertainment venue. The story about the Ryman and the people who performed here makes the tour well worth the money ... don't miss." Along the way you'll spot historic dressing rooms that are still in use today, along with rare photos and videos from Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan and Louis Armstrong.

Located in the heart of downtown Nashville, the Ryman Auditorium is open every day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Self-guided tours cost approximately $15 for adults and $10 for children ages 4 to 11 (there is an additional charge for the guided Backstage Tour option). You should also check the Ryman Auditorium website for a full list of upcoming concerts.
