The planetarium continues to operate remotely serving Saint Paul Public Schools and the community. We served over 15,000 members of the community during the 2019-2020 school year!

Physical Building-currently closed
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 film productions on our 30 ft. diameter screen.
