On Wednesday we decided to check out Tulsa, so we headed for downtown and The Center of the Universe. It is a bunch of bricks set in a circular pattern and (if you stand in the center) you can hear echoes, and your words and...More

Have to go place! We walked there from the Naples Flatbread and Wine Bar. The unexplained way it changes your voice is beyond cool!

So, you find a place to park, walk to the completely unmarked little bump, hear your echo, and that's it. It's odd and kinda cool that someplace billed as "the center of the universe" doesn't even have a plaque. I parked in the deck, checked...More

Doesn't take long to visit. Neat spot with giant metal spire nearby. It's cool to stand in the center and hear your voice echo.

If you visit one quirky thing in Tulsa, the center of the universe should be it! Not only is this attraction a mind bending phenomenon , but it is in the very cool Brady Arts District, surrounded by bars, coffee & yummy eats. The attraction...More

A little hard to find unless people have already beat you there. If you have the time stop by, there is a definite louder echoe back to you when you stand in the circle as the distortion outside I am not so convinced

This is easy to get to and interesting to see. Recommend going during the day as not in the best area. Was fun to stand in center and try to hear voice echoeing. Walking distance from Downtown
