Our tour guide showed us Einstein. His nose is lighter in color because it's local legend to rub his nose for good luck.

The statue is large and easily seen from the street. For those who wish to have their photo with the venerable gentleman, it is easily arranged.

Very interesting display of a special person. Visit in after 6:00 PM for easy parking, great place to sit around for awhile and take pictures. Located a few 100 feet from the Vietnam Memorial and a block below the US State Department

This statue is bigger than you may think. Located a short walk from Lincoln Monument. A great photograph spot. A good place to sit with a drink and snacks. Kids have fun climbing all over Einstein.

Anyone who sees Albert and doesn't want to just crawl on his lap, has no heart! This statue is (dare I say it) lovable!

I never understood why this memorial has been built but whatever the reason the actual statue is very nice and since it cocated in the Smithonean Museums area can be seen by a number of Museum visitors.

We stopped by this memorial quite a few times for photos, It is nice for a quick photo opportunity. It takes only a few minutes.
