This should be one of the top things to do in Oslo! It was incredible and so unique to see all of the different statues. We were there about an hour before sunset and it wasn't busy at all. I highly recommend.

There’s way more here than meets the eye – and there’s LOTS that meet the eye – in this magnificent public space! The world’s largest sculpture garden celebrating the work of a single artist, this park is a showcase for 212 bronze and granite sculptures by Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland. The collection, dubbed “The Weirdest Statues in the World” by The Daily Mail, includes everything from a woman embracing a giant lizard to a naked man fighting flying babies and everything in between. “Angry Boy,” one of the most popular pieces, portrays a toddler throwing a tantrum with amusing precision. The focal point of the park is “The Monolith,” a 46.33 foot high pillar made up of 121 intertwined human figures representing the human desire to reach out to the Divine. Other intriguing features are less obvious, like the paving around “The Fountain” which, while appearing simply decorative, is actually an intricate labyrinth that can take hours to complete. Tip: Take Tram #12 from in front of Oslo S to the Vigelandsparken stop for 35 NOK/adult, 18 NOK/child or senior ($4.32 and $2.22 respectively). Just make sure to travel in the right direction; with your back to the train station, the tram should be headed to your left. The tram stop for your return trip is on the same side of the street as the sculpture park itself. You can buy your tickets from the Visitor’s Center in the train station’s Ostbanehallen.

One of the highlights of our trip! The park has an amazing collection of Vigeland's work. It is a place the whole family will enjoy, and it is FREE!

This is a beautiful park. Mature trees, rose bushes, areas of shade, areas of full sun, seating etc. Take a picnic. The sculptures are worth a look. There is a cafe.
There are lots of steps. The views over the city are great though. You can see the ski jump from the far end,
If you need the toilet there is a fee! 15 KON at 24 June 2018. I refilled my water bottle while there.
Easily accessed by tram and bus.

Nice place to walk outside in the park. A lot to see. But dont go here if the weather is bad. Would ruin the experience.
