Ryman Auditorium Grand Ole Opry Self Guided Tour Nashville

Nashville is home to country music and the Grand Ole Opry and we finally got a chance to tour Ryman Auditorium. We went on the self guided tour which lets you walk through most of the historic building at your own pace. The introduction is a really cool video piece so don't miss out when you go - they really do a nice job of explaining how the Ryman Auditorium became home to the Opry and is now a landmark in Nashville. If you are in town for the Opry you might check to see what shows are happening at the Ryman the same weekend. They often have bluegrass nights and country artists at the Ryman.

The Ryman is just off Broadway so it is within walking distance to a lot of other attractions like the country music museum and hall of fame. Plus on Broadway you can grab something to eat at Jacks Bar-B-Que. Jacks can get crowded but there is lots of seating upstairs and if you get lucky you can sit up front where you have a view of Broadway. So the next time you are in Nashville make sure to visit the Ryman and learn all about the birthplace of the Opry just like Josh and Joe Travels!
