Owner description: 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.

Extremely interesting place situated at the Vigeland Sculputre Park. Well worth a visit. Walking distance from the city centre. Or you use the tram system.

I wasn't sure how much I would enjoy an outdoor sculpture park in late November, but we had a great time. The sculptures were amazing, especially the screaming baby! We had a guide along to explain the symbolism behind the sculptures which I also recommend. I can only imagine how beautiful this park is in the summer!

My Darling wife who is from Norway planned this trip for me to Vigeland Museum. It was breath taking to see the lovely statues and to hear the history of the art. If you travel to Norway this is a must see. It is a lovely relaxing park.

The sculptures are amazing. You can't visit Oslo without going here. It is the perfect place to enjoy a picnic while relaxing on the grass. Just keep in mind that it is quite far from the train station. I walked but would not recommend it.

The brief time we spent in Vigeland Park continues to touch my soul. These sculptures depicting the human experience are amazing. We visited in May 2014 when the tulips and gardens were in full bloom. We loved our time in Oslo; our experience walking through this beautiful park will be remembered always.

Really beautiful and interesting sculptures. Worth visiting for everyone. Visited in winter, so then it was quite slippery, so be careful during that time of year.

I was there in early December, a little fog, but the sculptures are worth a couple hours while in Oslo.
