This is your chance to feel the history of the Ryman Auditorium, home to the Grand Ole Opry for more than 30 years. You'll start by sitting in the original pews and viewing a short film presentation narrated by Trisha Yearwood. 'If These Walls Could Talk' will take you from the beginning of the Ryman's history through to today. After the film, you can head down to the legendary stage to stand underneath the lights and have a photo taken 'singing' in front of the Grand Ole Opry audience!
Then you'll be able to explore the fascinating memorabilia housed in exhibit-style cases along the back wall underneath the beautiful stained glass windows. Memorabilia includes everything from Marty Robbins' jacket to Minnie Pearl's famous hat, and also features items from the Ryman's earlier years prior to the Grand Ole Opry.
You'll then be able to head upstairs for a view of the stage from the balcony, and be sure to make your way out into the balcony hallway to explore the photos, artifacts, and other items housed upstairs. Photos are welcome inside the Ryman, so be sure to bring along a camera! This is your chance to tour one of Nashville's favorites, the National Historic Landmark often called 'The Mother Church of Country Music.'
