We were roaming around, visiting museums and saw this amazing sculpture, which looks as if coming to life. One of the most famous scientists in the world and we were with him!!!

What a surprise. Driving down Constitution Avenue and quietly sitting in the greenery is a sweet statue of Albert Einstein who looks like he's meditating, maybe on E=MC2. Sit beside him for a photo or meditate with him. Look for him when you are on...More

Quick and easy Memorial--great pics and good place to regroup! Usually people in the vicinity so no problem getting someone else to take your picture. Great for starting a conversation with your family! Very easy to visit after the Lincoln memorial/Vietnam memorial.

this is a wonderful opportunity to come up close to a historical giant. The place is very approachable and the statue welcomes you to interact with it. This is very close to all the major sites in the mall.

The Albert Einstein statue is located in a very nice park. Pack a lunch or snack and enjoy some time with Einstein.

Fun. In front of the National Academies Bldg. GO inside of this also!! Beautiful ceiling inside. Far more interesting than you might think and a good place to come in from the heat or cold of the day.

The Einstein Memorial is a great interactive memorial and photo-op near the National Academy of Sciences and Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The kids really liked taking the opportunity to climb around on the statue. Overall well worth the quick stop.

This unique memorial is the Only one in DC that encourages people to climb on. Take pictures on Einstein's lap. The floor is an exciting map of the stars! I've been to DC many times, taken the tours, and never knew about this until now....More
