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.
