Ryman Auditorium Tours

The Ryman Auditorium is a National Historic Landmark and must see for anyone visiting Nashville. Most famous as the home of the Grand Ole Opry from 1943 — 1974, its history as Nashville’s premiere theater and central gathering place started even before construction was complete in 1892. It is truly the cultural epicenter of Music City.

Take the Self-Guided Tour where you’ll discover the divine inspiration behind the building’s construction as the Union Gospel Tabernacle in the 1880s in our welcome video.

Take a guided Backstage Tour through dressing rooms dedicated to the stars of the Ryman’s rich musical past including Minnie Pearl and Hank Williams. These same dressing rooms are used by all the biggest stars performing today from Brad Paisley to Bruce Springsteen. Look out on the famous “Ryman Alley” where the stars cross over to the honky tonks and the Everly Brothers were discovered by Mr. Guitar, Chet Atkins. Finally, stand in the wings where performers as varied as Katharine Hepburn, Elvis Presley and James Brown stood awaiting their time in the spotlights.
