I, being a science teacher, was so excited to see this adorable monument on a quiet street. Had to get my picture taken with Albert to show my students!

Huge monument to this genius. Not sure what more I can say - it's opposite one of the hop on/off bus stops, so I took a photo whilst waiting for the bus.

The Albert Einstein Memorial in Washington, DC is an absolute amazing looking statue that is huge and looks real. My wife and I, as well as many visitors took pictures sitting on Einstein's lap!

My friend recommended I stop and see the statue at the Albert Einstein Memorial. I love statues, and this one ranks in the top 10 I've ever seen. It's just so darn cute! :) Very big, well done, and great location. Very close to the Lincoln Memorial.

Although the artist's rendition is interesting, I have never been a big fan of this work. I am not certain what aspect of Einstein or his work (both in science and elsewhere) that he was attempting to convey. However, if you are in the vicinity, you can form your own opinion - the entire process will take less than 5... More

His book reads in Latin, look through his eyes. If you do you will see the constellations on the ground. My mom loved his memorial

Albert Einstein has been a great inspiration to me ever since high school. The opportunity to visit this memorial and have my wife snap my picture sitting on his knee is a memory I hold dear.

DC is home to many pieces of public art. The Einstein memorial is accessible and fun. A great place for photography. And a great place to tell stories to children and young visitors. Parking nearby, on or off Constitution Ave, is a challenge but you might get lucky with street parking. Otherwise, one of the hop-on/hop-off buses will be your... More

This massive statue of Einstein is one of DC's fun, hidden treasures. There isn't anything to do at this site aside from having your picture taken while climbing or sitting on this memorial. Definitely worth a 5-minute stop if you are biking, driving or touring in the area. Simply genius! It is located feet away from a busy sidewalk, somewhat... More
