Viewing of the building can be done during business hours, but it is recommended that you call ahead.

The Center of the Universe is one of the rarest attractions in the city of Tulsa. Its strange quality lies in that it can strangely change the sound of your voice if you stand directly at the centre of its 30 inch cement circle. The speaker's voice assumes a vibrating nature that can be heard by the speaker alone. There is also no established explanation regarding what causes this unusual phenomenon. However, some theories claim that the parabolic reflectivity of the planter walls may be causing it. Despite this, the extraordinary nature of this attraction cannot be denied, thus making it a must-visit spot for those in Tulsa.
