Center of the Universe is something you have to experience at least once just to say you've seen it. Strange sounds and lights lend to the conspiracy theories surrounding the "planes" on center of the universe statue.

Must see if you are in the downtown area. Is a good way to walk off the lunch or dinner and see the city from a good perspective.

It is difficult to describe the effect of standing in the "Center of the Universe". When you stand there and talk or clap, there is a tight echo effect slapping back at you. But only you can hear it, anyone standing outside the center circle...More

Visited on Labor Day (downtown was pretty dead). Easiest way to find this - drive down 1st street going West, turn right on Boston Ave and drive into the loop. You can park there free for a minute or two, otherwise there is a garage...More

What a surprise it was to visit the first time. I actually thought the kids were playing a trick on my husband and me. But, it is awesome.

This is nothing I'd tell anyone to drive downtown to see, but if you are already there and walking around it's worth seeking out and taking a look. It's just a cool Tulsa landmark. :)

Interesting, weird, but I thought it would be a lot more of an echo. If in town, definitely check it out, but do not make a long drive to come here cuz it's not worth it.

Its sits right behind the BOK tower near the old "train depot," so its a short walk anywhere from downtown. The "echo" effect is neat and fun.

Interesting hard to find place in downtown Tulsa. The echo effects weird. It really doesn’t make sense. Considering the other things to do in Tulsa, if you’re in the area go. If you’re not, not a big deal to skip. We went about 10am on...More

I don’t think it’s a good place for a wedding. It’s a busy public sidewalk.
