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.

Must visit

Great museum with wonderful sculptures. It is a must visit place when in Oslo. Take time to stroll around the garden and learn about the story behind each sculpture.

Here you get the backstory to the worlds largest statuepark all made by one fantastic brain. Go there before you visit the park itself. Only two minutes walk between them.

We visited Vigeland sculpture park in February. It was a different experience. Lots of beautiful sculptures. These are presented in such a way that we didn't feel awkward to see all those naked statues. There is no entry fee for the park. It is huge and beautiful. May take 2-3 hrs to visit it in a relaxed pace. We didn't... More

An accessible exhibition in Norwegian and English throughout. Fascinating building, art and artist. Well worth the entrance fee of 60 nkr.

Do not stay in Oslo without coming here. Each time we are here we do take picnick basket with us. You stroll in the park, watch people snd status and afterwords spread the blancket to take a bite and relax. At the end take a trip to the museum and coffee shop. Perfect day

We visited the museum first (just across the road) where there are roomful of plaster sculptures for Vigeland's masterpieces in Frogner park. It was amazing to see how they move to completion. For the reviewers who found the pieces like pornography, I feel sorry for them having to visit art installations with their eyes closed....We visited in the snow which... More

You will feel like clicking a selfie with almost all of them. They are that beautiful !! - Some sculptures are too famous & you might find... More

The sculptures are insanely beautiful... I went here based on the reviews from trip advisor and thought ah! I'll just go because it's at the top of the list of places to see ... (Didn't think it would be that fantastic) But when I got there I was in complete awe and admiration of the work done here ... It's... More

Good place to go and understand the statues in the vigeland park. We went before our walk in the park and it really brought to life the statues,how they were made and history of the sculpture. Not a big museum and will only take you 30-45 mins to go round

One of the highlights of Oslo. Almost missed this one entirely. We saw the large statutes in the park and overheard a tour group discussing this museum. It was a 15 minute walk from the main park and well worth it. The master was indeed prolific with his 100's of the statutes. Some a bit risque for Americans and probably... More
