• como planetarium

    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. 


  • Work at Como Planetarium! 

    Full-time and part-time positions are available. See Saint Paul Public Schools website for the full-time listing. Contact Sarah Weaver at sarah.weaver@spps.org for part-time opportunities. A variety of skills are needed to bring us back to full operation!
