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.

The whole park is filled with stunning statues and pretty creative and different from the usual. The whole park is beautiful with its share for gardens, foliage and a playground too for the little ones. This is also a great place to take up as a picnic spot or to have lunch. It is beautiful and has so much to... More

We visited on a very cold day. Ice was everywhere so please purchase some walking spikes to go over your shoes. Ugg boots are not snow shoes in winter. This is spectacular and you probably need an hour or so to see everything at a glance. In winter an hour is enough but summer you could spend all say there... More

Make sure you see the indoor museum. They have some of the same sculptures as outdoor that you can see up closer and also models of how some of the sculptures were made. There are additional works as well. As much as I enjoyed being indoors (in January) the outdoor park is also nice for its scale and landscape. The... More

I was told by a Norwegian couple to 'don't miss this' before leaving from Australia. Its a beautiful sculpture park, with huge statues, well manicured gardens and huge gardens to picnic in too. We caught a tram right out front of our hotel and it took about 15 mins to get to this park. There is no entry fee either,... More

I visited Vigeland Museum on a cold Winter's day; the statues looked strange and striking against the snow and fog. This artist's work is fascinating, and my walk about the park was very memorable. Remember to wear good warm clothes if you also visit in Winter, so that you can spend a good amount of time exploring the area.

if you don't do anything else this is the place to go. The sculptures are amazing. They are done in very good taste. It is not overly crowded. You need to be able to walk up and down hills. But that makes it even more interesting. You can bring your lunch and have a picnic by the way it's a... More

We had a very short amount of time to spend in Oslo and Vigeland was worth that time and MORE. If my family had let me, I would have spent the entire day there! Vigeland is an amazing park filled with sculptures all created by the same artist. The layout of the grounds were also created by the artist and... More

The museum is situated in lovely surroundings, be preapred to walk - hence comfortable shoes are essential. Climb the stiars to the top for the view and read up about the artist. Comfort facilities also available at the end or beginning of your journey.

Sculptures in a city park in Oslo. Easily accessed via tram #12. No cost to walk thru park and see the sculptures. There is a museum nearby about the sculptor - that has a fee and is closed on Mondays - the only day we had available to visit. Try to visit when there is some light on the sculptures.... More

Nice park, excellent surroundings, nice place for jogging or just walking around and admiring the numerous sculptures. There is a small kids' par, wide running tracks. All in all worth visiting and walking from one to the other end of the park- the view is worth climbing few stairs :)
