Even if you don't have plans to see a show, it would be a shame to pass up a chance to tour the Guthrie. We really enjoyed the 10am Saturday morning Backstage ($10 adults). It was amazing to see how the sets are created, the costume shop, etc. But you don't have to pay to see the Guthrie - it was built for the public's enjoyment. A ride up the escalator will take you to the Endless Bridge, which juts out 178 feet toward the Mississippi and offers incredible views. There are unique finds at gift shop, too.
