The exhibits begin before you even enter the California Science Center. Artworks by Larry Kirkland in the Science Plaza include the paving stones, called Discovery Pavers, filled with science-related questions, riddles and quotes.

The California Gate is a two piece sculpture that frames a space the shape of the state of California. It is engraved with images representing the exhibits inside the California Science Center.

The DNA Bench is a large flower-shaped bench that makes a great spot to pause a moment to look up at Aerial, a spiral of over 1500 spheres suspended under a skylight in a pattern designed to evoke both a galaxy and being inside a chromosome.
