While this small memorial can be enjoyed in any type of weather but the very worst, i personally pefere visiting in the evenings.... It’s directly across Constitution Avenue from the Vietnam Memorial, so I usually include the two memorials together.

We decided to walk around Washington DC and ran into the Albert Einstein Memorial. It's HUGE! Much bigger than I expected it to be. We got some pretty great pictures here.

While riding by on a tour bus, we passed by the Albert Einstein Memorial. On my next trip, I will have to check it out closer. Einstein was rendered in a relaxed manner.

We found this memorial by accident walking by from the viet nam memorial. The sign was not placed where you could see it well and the sign itself was not noticeable. The position of the subject was awkward and distracted you from who it appeared to be.

Is located in the beautiful Constitution Avenue, right across the Lincoln Memorial and the reflecting pools so you can add this stop to see the statute and continue with your walking tour around those monuments.

I lived in Northern Virginia and had visited the mall area at least a dozen times before I had someone point this out to me. Even when I look for it leaving town on Constitution Ave, I can miss it since it is set back from the street and near a tree. This is such a soft and cuddly study... More

Yep, weird giant statue of Einstein just sort of sitting next to Constitution Ave. It just invites people to climb on his lap for a photo, hence iconic, so many photos.
