The Albert Einstein Memorial is a wonderful tribute to an amazing man. The statue is on ground level and is designed to have people crawl all over it which is great for both children and adults. The statue is located across the street from the Vietnam Memorial and near the Lincoln Monument. Stop here and pay tribute to a wonderful... More

We ran into this statue by accident, but it was very large and awesome! I had to stop and get my picture taken with it! Not very far at all from the Lincoln Memorial!

I just love the Einstein Memorial - it could not show Einstein better, so sophisticated, a real piece of wonderful art.

Nothing spectacular but it was cool to see the kids climb the statue. The nose is golden from people rubbing the nose for good luck.

This is sitting right on the corner after leaving the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and Lincoln Memorial. You are allowed to climb on it! It is huge- worth the photo!

This is a little known memorial just off of the Mall along Constitution Av that most never see. I enjoy taking people here because of its out of the way location. Be sure to stand in the middle of the circle facing Albert and talk to him-you will hear an echo!

We visited here just because of the shade frankly on a very hot day. It's a beautiful and fitting memorial to a great American and a fun area to people watch. Don't miss it if you can make the time.

When we visited, there were lots of tours out and about, so a huge group of the kids were on this memorial. We therefore couldn't get our own picture, nor to enjoy the memorial as much as the students were standing on Einstein's head. However, it is still something free, a memorial of a great mind without whom science would... More

This is a larger than life statue of Albert Einstein. It was completely unexpected to me. I knew there are Monuments & Memorials all over DC, but I never expected to see this one. And excellent find!

My husband is a huge fan of Albert Einstein and this is the first time we've seen this! It is in a quiet setting at the corner of Constitution Ave and 22 nd street NW. My son enjoyed climbing up on his lap. A nice find in DC!
