“Unexpected and kinetic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

The Einstein memorial is a lovely escape from the touristy cattle call of the mall. Slip away to spend some time with Einstein, and marvel at the beauty of this large-scale sculpture. This makes for a particularly lovely stop during the winter months, when you're likely to have Albert to yourself.

I love this monument! I spend a lot of time here during the summer just relaxing and watching random tourists. This is a fun and romantic spot for a date surprise!

“The Thinking Man”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Right across from the DC mall is the Albert Einstein Memorial. It is a great sculpture and makes you feel good when you see it. You can just sit and rest from all your other sightseeing.

“Take a seat with Albert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

Really cool, not much talked about memorial. If you are looking for it don't go by the trip advisor map (Feb 2013) it's actually down the end of Constitution Ave on the corner of 22nd street. Just a short walk from the Lincoln memorial up past the Vietnam war veteran's memorial and across the road.
