If you are in down town Tulsa, you need to go here and stand in the center of the universe. There's an echo when you talk if you are standing there. Very interesting!!

Center of the universe is marked by a circular brick stone on the ground outside the jazz museum. You can miss it if you’re not looking for it, but it’s an interesting spot. What you do is stand on the stone marking and then scream,...More

I can't explain this phenomenon. When you stand on this spot it produces an echo only you can hear. People outside this spot, even a few feet away can't hear the echo. It's like you're in a box.

Stopped by there with some friends. It's intriguing that when you are inside the circle your voice is magnified.

We visited and found this attraction in the middle of a quiet street in downtown Tulsa. There really isn’t much to see, a circle of stones in the ground. The amazing thing is if you call out, only you hear the echo.

Really??? You can skip this and not miss anything! It just so happened that we were near by & so decided to check it out. It is not a city landmark, more of a local legend. Unfortunately it isn’t maintained & the site is in...More

We stopped by because we were close already and this turned out to be a really cool quick stop. The kids and adults both enjoyed it and it was pretty wild how it actually worked as everyone said. It's free and for sure worth stopping

move around in the circle a bit while you are talking. When you get it right, your voice reverberates back and the weird part is when someone else is standing on the spot, you really can't hear them talking unless you are very close to...More

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