This statue is tucked away and has a little known secret. It will blow you away.....face the statue and stand on the grid in front of the statue. (on the latitudinal /longitudinal grid) Speak to Einstein and see what happens. You will hear your own voice directly back into your ear as if Einstein were speaking to you in your own voice. Spooky. We were shown this secret feature while visiting by a native....try it yourself!

A great place for a photo with Mr. Einstein. You can sit right in his lap. A nice spot in Washington that not many people visit.

Almost tucked away out of site, it's a wonderful place to take photos. You can actually perch on Einstein's lap.

We ran into it while walking around the city. Very nice. I was a little unimpressed by the way it was laid out. In my opinion, this is an increadibly important figure in world history, yet his memorial is in a little corner of D.C.
