Larger than life!

It's on the way to Lincoln, Vietnam and Korea. Located near the Federal Reserve. Great place to be a tourist and have a picture with an icon.

Most people - not even in Washington -- seem to know about the Albert Einstein memorial across Constitution Avenue from the Vietnam Memorial. It is really great at night . . . or day. It is great for the kids (of all ages) to climb on -- it just screams photo op. It is just fun, and good art. And... More

It's empty as no one knows about it. Pretty informative and a good pic. If you stand in the middle of the circle and whisper in the direction of the statue there's an echo back at you.. Pretty cool!

When I traveled with students, this was a must stop for pictures...it is one that you could miss very easily, as there are no major signs pointing it out. Because of its building material and size, it is one you can definitely get gather a group or family around, and not worry about damaging it.

This is an unexpected surprise while strolling down Constitution Avenue. The statue, which is much larger than life, is located, appropriately, outside the National Academy of Sciences. Don't miss the universe spread out at Einstein's feet!

If you like different textures, this place is for you. It is amazing that the monument looks very smooth and even from a long distance is appears as very sharp and angular figure as you stay close by.

Along the north side of Constitution Avenue across the street from the Vietnam Veterans' Memorial at the front of the National Academy of Sciences building is this massive statue of Albert Einstein. Made of 270 thousand pounds of bronze, the monument is wonderfully intimate and often has visitors climbing about Albert's seated form. Nestled among landscaping and almost hidden from... More

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.
