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.

This museum showed how the different in Vigeland Park was made. After viewing the park, this was a bit anti-climatic. I would skip this one entirely, unless it's raining and you need a place to take shelter.

Wonderful tour, almost too much to see. Great to see workshops with work in progress. Somewhat surreal art, beautifully crafted.

For more than 220 pieces of spectacular display of such genius mind carved in granite and bronze, I'm still in awe and disbelief, a theme which is centered on Family ( modern & typical type), you'll be amazed of how the sculptor typifies each single art for us to understand it very easily, a very unique place.

The Vigeland Museum, in the same place of his atelier shows the main works he performed during 40 years. After seeing His sculptures at the park take a short walk and you will understand the life of a genios.

There, you will be in awe, admiring some 220 statues in a beautiful park, all carved in granite or forged of bronze by Gustav Vigeland, for the City of Oslo. Much better to visit with a local guide who can explain to you the theme behind each one (that's what we did).
