We were only there for a few minutes but we were glad we stopped for a look. The statue is just so cool and the entire time we were there kids were climbing around it and sitting on his lap. Einstein looked relaxed and informal which was a nice view of someone who was so profound in many ways.

This wonder statue of Albert Einstein is a lot of fun for families. A great photo opportunity and kids can hang out and climb on him!! It's a great quick stop and an opportunity to rest your feet and people watch with Albert. Right near a lot of attractions.

Located near the Vietnam war memorial, and on the ground of the Academy of Sciences on Constitution Avenue. The 3 formulas Einstein has been famous for are written in a paper in the statue's left hand. The artist gave Einstein a casual posture, which makes him much more approachable and young than most traditional statues of historical figures.

It's not a huge memorial, but a fun one to see if you're in the area (Constitution Street, near the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, in front of the National Academy of Science Building. It's a huge sculpture...one could even sit on Albert Einstein's lap for a photo opportunity! Glad I saw it!

It's worth to stop here, even just for a quick pic. We stopped by on a Saturday during the peak bloom of the cherry blossom festival. Let's just say that the entire national mall was crowded. We could see the massive crowds of people on the steps of the Lincoln memorial and at the war memorials from where we stood... More

I recently took a nephew to the Albert Einstein memorial, at the corner of Constitution and 22nd Street, one block from the State Department. He wanted to go there because he and his future wife had posed there as high school students on a field trip to Washington. He remembered it fondly. So does everyone. It has rapidly become the...

I really enjoyed the work and time put into this memorial. Einstein was one of the most important figures of our time and you can tell by the work done there that it represents him really well. The statue is actually much bigger once you get closer to it then looking at it from the bus.
