“The NMAAHC is a must-see! Get up early Saturday morning and be in line by 10 AM (park at the Reagan Building using Parking Panda App). Start on the bottom floor! Do not start at the top floor, start at the bottom floor, but get there early b/c the elevator makes the line long. Make sure you eat lunch at the cafe! Wear the most comfortable shoes you have on this trip; you will thank me later!”

The steps had their moment of fame as the spot where Father Karras tumbled to his demise in the in the cult horror classic The Exorcist. Locals flock to the steps to get their sweat on, so you’ll be in good company.”

“The memorial to Albert Einstein, situated in an elm and holly grove in the southwest corner of the Academy grounds, was unveiled at the Academy's annual meeting, April 22, 1979, in honor of the centennial of the great scientist's birth. Einstein is depicted seated on a three-step bench of Mount Airy (North Carolina) white granite. The bronze figure, weighing approximately 4 tons, is 12 feet in height. Three caissons, totaling 135 tons, sunk in bedrock to a depth of 23 to 25 feet, support the monument. In its left hand, the figure holds a paper with mathematical equations summarizing three of Einstein's most important scientific contributions: the photoelectric effect, the theory of general relativity, and the equivalence of energy and matter.”
