Well organized self guided tour starting with a short video of history of the Ryman which is a must to see. It provided great insight of the founders and the history of the original "Grand Ol Opry"

Of all the places I went to in Nashville, this was my favorite. The movie the show before the tour with halograms was worth the ticket price alone.

The Auditorium was very interesting to tour and stand on the stage where great performers had performed. There are some displays of costumes worn and intruments played by performers.

It is better to get around using taxi or Uber services. We were very pleased with the Uber drivers in Nashville. As with most cities, leave your car at the hotel and take taxi.

It looks like if you drive up 5th avenue and turn right onto the driveway/road behind the Ryman there will be a valet stand somewhere along there. I think the valet parking is for concerts, I'm not sure if they have it for... More
