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 in Como Elementary School (we are not located in Como Park...nearby...but not in). Our state-of-the-art system provides the opportunity for visitors to take virtual trips though the solar system, as well as enjoy quality film productions on our 30 ft. diameter screen.
Science education is our goal! We provide standards-based quality programing for pre-school through high school students. We are able to adapt presentations to best serve your students. We serve Saint Paul Public Schools, other districts, and educational organizations.
