  • The Albert Einstein Memorial contains a nice statue with quotes on the back. Formulas and astronomical information add to its appeal. A plaque near the memorial provides some nice details about it. The memorial is locating on Constitution Avenue, and if you’re walking from the Lincoln Memorial toward Constitution Avenue, it’s a relatively short walk. During my visit, I saw some kids enjoying climbing on it for a photo. If you’re in the area, the memorial is well worth taking a few minutes or several minutes to visit.
  • The statue honoring Albert Einstein is very well done. It was a wonderful experience to see such a great likeness of the scientific genius and hero of mine. From all the photos I've seen of him, this is a true to life image, all most like he would rise up and walk the streets of Washington DC. Beautiful memorial.
