    Como Planetarium is a 55-seat planetarium that specializes in educational experiences. We have been in operation since 1975 and we operate both our 'classic' star ball and an updated system. We are located at Como Elementary School (780 W Wheelock Pkwy, St Paul, MN 55117). Our system provides the opportunity for visitors to take virtual trips through the solar system, as well as enjoy interactive lessons.
