If you are passing by, you can take your picture taken over a spot named as Center of Universe. Nothing more to it.

What else needs to be said. Stand in the middle of the Universe in the Blue Dome District of Tulsa. Located in Downtown Tulsa, it is located near many excellent restaurants and clubs. Nightlife is great, and home to the International Mayfest celebration.

Took my daughter here a few weeks ago. She thought it was really cool. It could use a little TLC. But its something cool to do in downtown Tulsa at least once.

I had no idea when I was told I was going to the center of the universe....it was a surprise and fun. Takes a couple of minutes and so do it if you are in the area.
