We love to take pictures with this statue every time we visit D.C. It is across the street from the Lincoln memorial. Einstein is very welcoming and looks different from most other statues in the area. We always seem to visit at night so we have him to ourselves.

Its nothing major. Just a huge statue of Einstein hanging out in D.C. Its fun, you climb him, take some cool photos, hang out for a bit and get on your with your day. Its a pretty cool monument though! Great for when you are just walking around the city.

The statue is actually just across Constitution Avenue from National Mall, close to Lincoln Memorial and just beneath the Academy of Science and the State Department, but not many people know about it. And it is one of the »coolest« memorials in DC, very accessible and fun and people love it for it, love taking pictures at it, I guess... More

Like many of the monumnets and memorials in DC we did not have a guided tour for this one, but wish we had. I think a guide would have helped this site come to life and have more meaning for us. The statue is cool and differnet than the many others you'll see in the area. Check out the ground... More

I didn't even know about this statue, we happen to stumble across it when we made a wrong turn! It was a great find! Took a picture of us sitting in his lap! Fun! Fun! Fun!!

Absolutely adorable and impressively large statue of Albert Einstein at the National Academy of Sciences near the Washington Monument. This was a "must have" for my DC album.

The Albert Einstein Memorial is a must see. It is located near the Lincoln Memorial and is worth the little walk over to see him. I thought it was adorable.

This is almost a quirky in its construction yet so very recognizable. Positioned essentially on a side work and, unlike many monuments, is freely available to touch and sit on. Should be far more of this.

The statue is huge and definitely accessible. We were able to climb all over and pose with Einstein for picture. His nose is a different color than the rest of him as it is supposed to be good luck to rub his nose! Neat sculpture and great photo stop. We visited in the evening and were able to park right...
