  • Just to clarify there is no exhibit here its just a statue and memorial to Albert Einstein. Its a nice stop when you are in the National Mall area to take pictures.

  • The Albert Einstein Memorial is definitely worth checking out. The statue of Einstein is huge! I loved the green scenery behind it and the rose bushes infront of it. The information board is worth the read with an awesome quote from Einstein. The floor that he sits in represents the "celestial map." Super cool!
  • I love the simple yet subtle complexity of this memorial. I liked it when it was more hidden behind the trees, felt like a special gem to come across. Regardless, I recommend checking it out. The dais is loaded with metal studs representing thousands of astronomical objects, fun to try to recognize some on your own.
