It’s Out of this World: Como Park Elementary Planetarium

When the Minneapolis Central Library was bulldozed in 2002 to build a larger building, its planetarium was not included in the final design.  Since the construction of the new Library building and it’s opening in 2006, Minneapolis and the Twin Cities area has been without a public planetarium, except for the Como Park Elementary Planetarium, called simply Como Planetarium.


Como Planetarium isn’t always open to the public, just on certain days of the month, for birthday parties, special events, and after regular school hours have ended.

It is a 55 seat planetarium and by the looks of the video, a fun way to learn about the universe around us.

Tuesdays:  5:30 pm & 7:00 pm.

There is a day for Homeschoolers twice a month on Mondays during the day, see the calendar at the bottom of the link.

Cost:   $5 per person (free for children under two).

Tickets



Amateur Astronomy in the Twin Cities

The Planetarium destined for the Minneapolis Central Library has been destined for the Remodeled Bell Museum at the University of Minnesota–St Paul Campus.  On the corner of Cleveland Ave and Larpenteur Ave (2088 Larpenteur Ave, Falcon Heights MN 55108).

Also at the Tate Laboratory for Physics and Astronomy on the University of Minnesota Campus there is a Public Telescope Viewing.  Atop Tate Physics building on the Mall (map) sits a dome that has a schedule for amateur astronomers from the public to use their telescope to view the sky.


We are posting this as a courtesy to Como Park Elementary School, and Como Planetarium.  We had our 2018 Precinct Caucuses at the school.  We are not associated with the school, and we do not receive any money from the sale of their tickets.  We provided a link to make it easier for you to purchase a ticket.  I am a graduate of the University of Minnesota’s Institute of Technology, and I’m an amateur, backyard astronomer.
