Museums >Ryman Auditorium
The mother church of country vocals still welcomes the biggest names in music..
Built in 1892, Ryman Auditorium has hosted countless visionaries, including Enrico Caruso, John Philip Sousa, Sarah Bernhardt and Charlie Chaplin. But the Ryman will forever be known as the mother church of country music. When the Grand Ole Opry settled into this brick tabernacle in the heart of downtown in 1943, the Ryman instantly became the stage where every country star wanted to perform. In the summer, don't miss the amazing bluegrass shows.
the mother church. great listening room -- parking crowded -- staff very rude.
RymanReview. 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.
Country Rocks!. The Ryman is a awsome place, great music, the atmosphere is great and it is a beautiful place to visit.
Tour not worth the money. 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.
one of the only venues remaining.
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.
Almost Perfect!?. I went to a show about 6 years ago there called "Lost Highway" and it was great, And I just went to the Ryan Adams show on Oct 14th 2002. And the venue was excellent. I couldnt believe he was playing there, BUT the venue was rockin!
Love the Ryman. The best ambience, cozy, ideal for instrumental music. The Opry is truly at home here.
2002 Fan Fair. Loved the Ryman Auditorium great place for the IFCO show, radio interviews. We had our pictures taken with persons dressed as Minni Pearl and Hank! The building is beautifully restored.
THE place to hear music. 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.
