    The self guided tour is great. They'll literally let you just wander around the building looking at stuff. You can take as much or as little time as you like.

    Amazing how big it was.

    Elaine Beauchamp · September 6, 2014
  • Leigh Anne B.

    Be careful where your seats are. There are support columns that obstruct view and being seated under the balcony can obstruct view if you're tall.

    This one-time tabernacle church is an experience you will not soon forget, and there is not a bad seat in the house. Everyone should see a show here at least once in their lives. Read more

    My favorite venue in all of Nashville (possibly the world). If you get the option, choose balcony tickets and prepare to weep from the beauty of the venue and your favorite artist's show.

    Good venue. Downstairs audience stands for most of the concert. Get seats in the balcony if you want to sit during event. Remember, it used to be a church...

    Experiencing a show from the balcony is an unforgettable experience, best sound in all of Nashville.

    When you're finished with the Country Music Hall of Fame, take in a show at the historical Ryman Auditorium. It's been around since the 1800s and is called the "Mother Church of Country Music."
