Como Planetarium is a 55-seat planetarium that specializes in educational experiences. In operation since 1975, the planetarium operates both 'classic' star ball and an updated system.

The Planetarium is located in Como Elementary School, 780 West Wheelock Parkway in Saint Paul.

The Planetarium’s 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 a 30 ft. diameter dome.
