Welcome to Como Planetarium!
Como Planetarium is a 55-seat planetarium that has been in operation since 1975. We are located in Como Elementary School (we are not located in Como Park...nearby...but not in). Our state-of-the-art immersive video 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.
We serve St. Paul Public School students, as well as students from many other districts in the metro area. In addition, through our public shows and private shows, we provide programming for families, scouts and just about any organization interested in scheduling a show.
There's quite a bit of road construction on Wheelock Parkway adjacent to Como Planetarium. So, if you are coming to a public show, take Maryland to Grotto, and then enter at the east end of Como Elementary School (opposite of Grotto and Orange), and make your way down the driveway in front of the building to our planetarium parking lot at the other end.
Available many Tuesdays during the school year. $5 per person (free for children under two).
