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 missed out on any of the stone sculptures at the park, you can see all of them here.(miniature models) You can also have a close look at all the sculptures and capture them on your camera easily.

The statues were amazing. Each one was different and expressive. The park itself is beautiful with flowers and streams running through it. I was also impressed with the beautiful iron gates.

We enjoyed visiting the Vigeland Museum after touring the Vigeland Park. I think it was best to tour in that order - since you can then get up close to the sculptures that you have seen in the park. Nice place to take pics too - and there was hardly anyone there when we visited on a Sunday morning. Vigeland... More

The museum itself is quite small though there are lots of interesting sculptures within. I enjoyed reading the information behind some of them. Some of the sculptures are a little obscure which I think made me enjoy the exhibit more. Most of the statues you can see outside in the gardens for free and are just as good so I... More

We visited this on a cold winter’s day, the park was covered in snow and looked beautiful. Free to enter and huge. We spent several hours wandering around, taking hundreds of photos. The detail on the sculptures is amazing. I’m not convinced we saw more than half of them. Definitely worth a visit and we’d go again.

Museum is located in the Vigeland Park. Whole exhibition is composed from figured in park, but only smaller. In the museum is possible to see figures better and without tourist rush, you can better see circle of life, which these figures show us. Each of the figur is specific and I like, that they show our happy moments in our... More

The museum is a must-see when you visit Oslo. There are pieces in the museum that are not in the park.

Get here early and you'll have the whole place to yourself. The place is full of interesting tools and mock ups that helped build the gardens next door.
