About Como Quest

Dive into a global adventure in the heart of Como Park Zoo and Conservatory and discover more to learn—and love—about the animals and plants in our care. Your Como Quest mission, if you choose to accept it, will send you and your team on a treasure hunt through the rainforest habitat of Tropical Encounters, the coastal landscapes of Como Harbor, the tundra of Polar Bear Odyssey and the lush gardens of the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory on an unforgettable adventure exploring Minnesota’s most visited conservation destination.

Como Friends’ Como Quest is a wild exploration designed for multigenerational fun, as kids and adults work together to unlock conservation clues, collect rewards, and uncover exciting new secrets about animals, plants and the planet we share. With an interactive smartphone app and an adventurous spirit, your team of treasure hunters will dig deep into Como’s amazing animal and plant collections, while supporting the best care possible for the animals and plants and free admission that is so important to our community.

Regardless of age or ability Como Quest is perfect for connecting your family to the very best of Como Park Zoo and Conservatory. Hear what a few players from the inaugural event have to say:

“We had a LOT OF FUN and the kids loved completing the Conservation Missions around Como Zoo. We can’t wait to sign up for the next Como Quest!”

“The concept is fantastic and I loved that it was on an app. There was no fussing with paper or pens, and I have great photos of the kids on my phone to keep the memories from Como Quest.”

We look forward to having you set sail with us on the next Como Quest!
