Discover the Heart and Soul of Nashville, Tennessee for Five Days & Four Nights at 21c Museum Hotel Nashville Round Trip Economy Class Air for Two, Including a Grand Ole Opry House Backstage Tour and a Discover Nashville City Tour
Nashville is the epicenter of country music – it’s the city that founded country music, it’s where you’ll find live music day and night streaming from rows of honky tonks lining Lower Broadway, and it’s home to country’s most famous stage, the revered Grand Ole Opry! Spend a few days in Nashville to discover the creative energy, the hidden gems, the history and history in the making; your tour of Nashville and backstage tour of the Grand Ole Opry will take you to some of the best attractions! With a location just blocks from Nissan Stadium, Bridgestone Arena and entertainment along Broadway, 21c Museum Hotel Nashville is woven into the fabric of downtown, welcoming both visitors and locals to enjoy the curated exhibitions, cultural programming, and culinary offerings at the historic Gray & Dudley building – its an art-filled escape from it all.
Experience the art of today at one of the largest multi-venue contemporary art museums in the United States. The historic Gray & Dudley has been re-imagined to showcase more than 10,500 square feet of exhibition space where curated exhibitions and site-specific installations reflect the global nature of contemporary culture. The galleries are open every day and exhibitions rotate, as do the regular cultural programming, and guided docent tours are offered every Tuesday and Thursday – which means there’s never a bad time to visit and see something new! The Gray & Dudley Building was constructed in 1900, a time when the city of Nashville was booming much like it is today. You’ll find your guest room at 21c Nashville to be a sanctuary from the art and activity that fills the galleries and vibrant spaces in and surrounding the property. Designed by Deborah Berke Partners, the guest rooms have wood floors and high ceilings, contemporary furnishings, large windows, and luxurious floor-to-ceiling drapery. The comfortable beds and thoughtful touches, such as plush robes and Malin + Goetz bath amenities, will leave you feeling restored and ready to explore.
Get ready for the ultimate country music Nashville bucket-list item: a backstage tour of the Grand Ole Opry! Walk in the footsteps of country music’s superstars and get an exclusive look into what happens behind the scenes of the show that made country music famous. A knowledgeable tour guide will share a few of the many stories about the Opry and the country music superstars that have played here, from the past to the present, from Minnie Pearl to Carrie Underwood. See photos from some of the Grand Ole Opry’s biggest moments in history and walk through the artist’s entrance, where new stars, superstars and the legends of country music enter the building on the night of a show. There might even be an opportunity to step on stage and into the famed wooden circle as countless musicians and artists have done for many years! Additionally, the tour may include a stop at Studio A, a live television studio and the former home of the hit television variety show Hee Haw, which aired from 1969 until 1992.
