Ryman Daytime Tours

from £19 per person

Established in 1892 as the Union Gospel Tabernacle, Ryman Auditorium is a National Historic Landmark and a must see for any Nashville visitor!

Most famous as the home of the Grand Ole Opry from 1943 — 1974, there is far more to the story of Music City’s most recognizable icon. Take a Self-Guided or Guided Backstage tour and discover what makes the Ryman such a unique location!

At the start of your tour, you will be immersed in the Ryman’s magical history during “Soul of Nashville”, a one-of-a-kind theatre experience which puts the spotlight on more than a century of legendary performances and showcases a new collaboration with Darius Rucker, The Fisk Jubilee Singers, Sheryl Crow and Vince Gill.

Five new exhibits are now open: Discover “Workin’ on a Building,” “Showplace of the South,” Mother Church of Country Music,” “Ryman Stage to Screen,” and “Ryman Renaissance”. Peruse genuine artefacts and enjoy videos with hosts Charles Esten, Marty Stuart, Nicole Kidman, Ricky Skaggs, Robin Roberts and Trisha Yearwood as they take you through each chapter of the fascinating Ryman story.

Visit the Ryman Gift Shop and take a piece of music history home with you! Find exclusive Ryman merchandise including t-shirts, Hatch Show Prints, novelty memorabilia along with specialty CDs and DVDs. And now, you can make your own custom shirt at the all new activity station!

Make a Record at the Ryman! Visit the Ryman's recording studio and cut your own CD! Choose from a selection of classic songs or bring an original composition of your own and leta sound engineer record your rendition right in the Ryman Auditorium. Please note: Recording is not included in your Ryman Tour and must be arranged and purchased locally.

If you choose the Guided Backstage Tour you also get the chance to see dressing rooms dedicated to the stars of the Ryman's rich musical past including Johnny Cash, Hank Williams and Minnie Pearl, and stand in the wings where performers such as Elvis Presley, James Brown and Katharine Hepburn stood, awaiting their time in the spotlights!
