Center of the Universe

Tulsa, Oklahoma

OklahomaRoadside Attraction

Find the Center of the Universe in Tulsa, Oklahoma to experience a unique acoustic phenomenon you must hear (or not hear) to believe.

Look down on Boston Ave. and you’ll find a big worn-out brick circle that comes in at around 20 inches in diameter. At the center of that circle is another, smaller, concrete circle that all the bricks wind around. This spot is known as the Sonic Center of the Universe.

Stand in the center of the Tulsa Center of the Universe and whatever you say you’ll hear echo back to you much louder than in the volume you said it, but no one else around will hear the reply.

Find this quirky spot just northwest of the old Union Train Depot (now the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame), and north of the Williams Center Tower. Next to the landmark, you’ll find another unique site: Artificial Cloud. The 72.5-foot tall sculpture was created by Native American artist Robert Haozous in 1991.
