It's hard to miss any of the memorials in Washington D.C, and the Einstein memorial is no exception. I love the little equations scribed into the book! There isn't much to read or see apart from the statue itself - so take a few photos...More

We visited the Albert Einstein Memorial in front of the National Academy of Sciences. The statue of Einstein was really cool and a nice tribute to him. Also the etching of the stars and planets to the 4th magnitude was excellent. The only downside was...More

Albert Einstein was a genius and an amazing man, and his statue is a fitting monument to him. It’s larger than I had initially pictured, though I’ve read some reviews say it was small. It’s easily accessible, right across the street from the Lincoln Monument...More

The Albert Einstein memorial is a little bronze statute that is a tribute to the man. He was a highly intellectual man.

This is a great statue for taking photos. It is big enough to have people in his lap too. Really a nice tribute to the smart man!

Easy to miss as you approach the Lincoln Memorial or the Vietnam Memorial, but worth a quick side trip of only a few feet.

Riding round on a tour bus I spotted the statue to one side off The Mall. Bigger than I expected but not sure why it’s not more serious - didn’t realise Einstein was maybe a fun guy after all?! You can get up close and...More

After seeing a photo of this Memorial I wanted to visit myself. Enjoyed being able to sit on his lap and have my photo taken and I like the relaxed stance of his pose. Worth a visit which won't take too long.
