I-40 to Broadway, east on Broadway (towards downtown and Cumberland River). Left on 5th Avenue North, Ryman is on immediate right.


Designated a National Historic Landmark in 2001, the Ryman has an impressive country music origin. As home to the Grand Ole Opry, the building gained nationwide recognition. From 1943-74, artists including Hank Williams, Kitty Wells, Bill Monroe, Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley could be found on the Ryman stage. In 1974, when the Opry moved to the new Grand Ole Opry House, the Ryman closed its doors, remaining virtually empty for twenty years. This and several other country music events held in the building that year are credited with helping renew interest in restoring the Ryman. The Ryman reopened in 1994, quickly regaining its place as one of the country’s leading concert halls. Self-guided museum tours and guided backstage tours are available daily.
