The Vigeland Park is the world's largest sculpture park made by a single artist, and is one of Norway's most popular tourist attractions. The park is open to visitors all year round.The unique sculpture park is Gustav Vigeland's lifework with more than 200 sculptures in bronze, granite and wrought iron. Vigeland was also in charge of the design and architectural layout of the park. The Vigeland Park was mainly completed between 1939 and 1949. Most of the sculptures are placed in five units along an 850 meter long axis: The Main gate, the Bridge with the Children's playground, the Fountain, the Monolith plateau and the Wheel of Life.

The park celebrates the artistry of Vigeland, a magnificent sculptor. As the majority of the statues are outdoors try and plan for a day with good weather. The park is large and also has lots to see. If the weather is right, pack a lunch its a great setting to enjoy the scenery, Be aware that the majority of the... More

You should visit this museum of Vigeland's work in conjunction with the display of his art in the nearby park. The museum gives perspective to the monumental work that went into the park.

We visited Vigeland on our trip to Oslo in 2016, and was totally happy with the visit. Vigeland have many sculptures to show, all the ones, that are not present in the park. So a visit to the Vigeland Park will usually end up with a visit to Vigeland Museum too, because those two are connected, and tells a whole... More

After being at Vigeland's Museum at three separate occasions the last half a year I can safely say that I have been captivated by the hidden treasures of the Norwegian sculptor and the contemporary exhibitions that take place at this location. Anyone from Norway or outside Norway interested in culture will be enriched by this experience. Extraordinary.

Beeing in Vigelandsparken on a sunny day is just amazing. Lots of space for the kids to play around and pretty flowers for us as parents - enjoy!

This is a must do. To see the expression of each statutes and getting an explanation from a guide of what the artist was thinking in creating the each piece of art. You should also touch the statute to feel the backbone, muscle, skin texture, so amazing. The park is huge, so budget at least 2 to 3 hours.

The museum leads a difficult life in shade of the sculpture park, it must be admitted, but if you have seen the park and want to go deeper into the matter, the Vigeland museum can be quite interesting. Some of the early works are on display and show a more sensitive and gentle style than what can be seen from... More

A short visit after walking in the park for hours. Which we should have continued as I think it's way better than the museum...
