That space is wonderful ! The documentary available before the tour is very well done and is a window to the future for this type of museum format . Holograms , multiple projections , etc . The curation of the museum incorporated with a working venue is wonderful . I would love to see a show there in the future .

My boyfriend and I loved the Ryman self-guided tour! The short film introduction was great. There were historians posted throughout the auditorium ready to answer any and all questions. I wish the recording studio was open but I completely understand how that is not possible during a pandemic.

The vibe of this old church is awesome. It is well worth taking the time to learn about the beginnings of this historically significant structure and the people who work so hard to keep it going and preserve it. But most importantly, the long standing tradition of music and other performances that make that are so important to the history of Nashville!
