NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Ryman Auditorium and Grand Ole Opry House will reopen for tours at limited capacity amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Both locations will open Friday for daytime tours. Ryman Properties is remaining cautious, so they have implemented new safety protocols.
This weekend only, the Grand Ole Opry House will allow backstage tours starting at 10 a.m. Over at the Ryman, self-guided tours will be available Tuesdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. through 3 p.m.
Backstage tours of the Ryman will not be offered during Phase 3 of Metro’s reopening process.
Both venues will operate at limited capacity due to the pandemic. Staff must wear a mask and employees will have their temperatures checked before each shift.
In addition to that, guests visiting either attraction can expect to be required to wear a face mask and answer health screening questions before the tour.
They say hand sanitizer stations will be placed throughout the building and cleaning procedures have been enhanced.
