Nestled on 25-acres of pristine gardens in the heart of midtown Tulsa, Philbrook Museum Of Art offers world-class art in a villa that transports visitors to the Italian countryside. In addition to a sprawling collection of American, Southwestern, Renaissance and Baroque art and sculpture, Philbrook’s collection includes one of the most comprehensive surveys of 20th Century Native American art in the United States. Founded out of the historical home of Waite and Genevieve Phillips, Philbrook also features an architectural addition with auditorium, restaurant, library, and educational studios.

The museum represents hundreds of Indigenous cultures from across North and South America, with material culture and archaeology ranging from 12,000 BCE to the 21st century. The collection includes more than 350 years of American paintings, sculptures and works on paper, including the largest public holdings of art of the American West.

TULSA ZOO

For 90 years, the Tulsa Zoo has inspired a passion for wildlife as a fun and affordable destination where families can connect. Since 1928, the Tulsa Zoo is home to more than 400 species. Many of the animals in zoo care are rare and endangered in the wild. Visit immersive exhibits, like the Mary K. Chapman Rhino Reserve; learn more about your favorite animals during daily keeper chats; or enjoy the scenery during a round-trip on the train.

CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE

In the middle of a pedestrian bridge on Boston Avenue lies an unassuming concrete circle surrounded by bricks. The average passerby would think nothing of the bizarre design, but step into the middle of the circle, say a word or two, and you’ll see what all the fuss is about. Any sound you make in the circle is echoed back to you—only much louder—and any voices outside the circle sound distorted to the person on the inside. Visitors to this acoustic anomaly have dubbed the location, “The Center of the Universe,” fitting for a place that defies the laws of physics. What causes this phenomenon? No one knows for sure, but it remains a popular stop for visitors ready to experience the mystery for themselves

Accessible from the corner of West Archer St. and North Boston Ave.  It is located directly northwest of the old Union Train Depot (now the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame), and immediately north of the Williams Center Tower.
