This is an awesome historic place where many legends have played. Even if you aren't attending a show here then go on a tour. The sound is amazing and I would certainly recommend going to a concert here. Outstanding! I have been to serveral concerts here and even the balcony seating is great. You are in a much more intimate place than some big stadium.

When you step inside the Ryman Auditorium, you feel like you are in a special place...and you are. There is a lot of history withing the walls of this building. I will leave the history lesson for you to search out on your own. It is very interesting and has a very good lesson to be learned.

I have only had the priveledge of sitting in the balcony at the Ryman, though someday I know I will luck out and get floor seating.

I have attended the Grand Old Opry here and sat in church style pews.

I don't know what else to say. This is one of those things you just have to experience to understand.

great listening room -- parking crowded -- staff very rude.

Pros: variety of acts, easy to get to, places to eat near by

Cons: staff extremely rude, venue parking bad, ticket prices steep

The Ryman Auditorium is consistently rated among performers as one ot the country's top places to play, and that's no accident. This is a beautiful space with great acoustics, and a place that holds a lot of history. When you attend a show, take a cushion along (or rent one) to sit on, because the seats are wooden pews.

The Ryman Auditorium not is one of the most recognized historical buildings in Nashville, it was the first stadium seating that existed here. There is no bad seat in this "once a church" auditorium.

The admission was pretty steep. We would have been better off going when there was an event there and looking around as it wasn't that great of a tour.

The Ryman has stood the test of time, thank God.
Nashville Keeps loosing all of its best venues, but thanks to smart people, and great acoustics, The Ryman still stands.

I LOVE the Ryman! Have been there for several concerts and plays and am always amazed at the acoustics. The structure is beautiful. And I have never been anywhere where the staff is always so friendly and helpful.

you can feel the history every time you go to a show here, and you can tell the performers do as well. my favorites at the Ryman so far: Emmylou Harris & Linda Ronstadt, and Alison Krauss+Union Station.

I've seen a number of shows at the Ryman -- from Elvis Costello to Willie Nelson -- and have enjoyed each experience. The talk about the Ryman's spectacular acoustics is true. If a performer doesn't have the singing chops to pull of a show at the Ryman, they better skip it, because the auditorium won't hide a weak voice. Only real downside, the Ryman has the traditonal church benches, which can get kind of uncomfortable for long shows, but still nice to keep the traditional seating. Overall, an amazing venue. Nice that Nashville had the sense to restore this national landmark to its former glory.
