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.

If you've already visited the Vigeland park, the museum will give you the depth of his work. All of the workshops before the finished work (that you can see in the park) are all here. Overall, cool stuff!

We live in Oslo and take all our visitors to this amazing park. The sculptures depict real people of all ages and I especially love how Vigeland has captured old age. This is a must for visitors to Oslo, an oasis in the heart of the city.

Whether or not you are a dan of this body of work, the sheer monumentality of it all is staggering and must be seen. We saw it on a cloudy summer day. I imagine it is quite spectacular in the winter. I would expect this site to look very different under different weather conditions and wish I could see it... More

Absolutely astounding to discover the sheer amount of work that went into Vigeland Parken/Frogner Park and its sculptures. The story behind it's construction and sentiment is well worth discovering as it makes you respect the beauty of the final piece all the more. I rate the museum a 3 as I found it extremely park-sculpture-centric, in the sense that I... More

Absolutely worth a trip inside the mind and workings of the Artist Vigeland. Within this lovely building you will be enlightened as to how Vigeland made the wonderful sculptures that are seen in the nearby park. Read and see for yourself the original clay sculptures, casts and moulds perfected by the Artist and his Apprentices. Inspirational !!

It is located in the building that the City of Oslo gave to Vigeland to complete his park project. It displays many of Vigeland plaster models and explains how he and his... More
