Sculpted by famous Robert Berks, The Albert Einstein Memorial is a remarkable site that you should not miss when visiting the District.

The Albert Einstein Memorial was built in April 1979, which is the centennial of his birth. Resting over the woods and flowers at the southwest angle in National Academy of Sciences grounds, the full-length bronze statue of Albert Einstein seats in a semi-circle three-step bench holding a manuscript on his left hand. The bench is made of white granite from Mount Airy of North Carolina. The circular floor is made of emerald pearl granite, for which according to NAS official site, came from Larvik, Norway. It embeds the celestial map consisting of 2, 700 metal studs representing the astronomical elements at noon.

Young and old truly love The Albert Einstein Memorial in honor of one of the most brilliant scientist and inventor of all time.
