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 Vigeland museum is located next to the Vigeland sculpture park (Vigelandsparken / Frognerparken). It is a very interesting museum, displaying drawings and other art (marble sculptures, for instance) beside the gypsum models of the final sculptures, mainly iin granite, seen in the park. Vistiing the museum will make you understand better, and appreciate the meticulous work involved in going... More

Our visit to the Vigeland Park, in Oslo, was outstanding. Nestled in the most beautiful surroundings, it was awesome to see all these statues created by one person over a period of many years. Each statue "tells a story", which in turn evokes so much emotion. We were fortunate to stroll along on a perfect day. The Hop on and... More

Do not come back from Oslo without visiting Vigeland. Go there even if it is sunny, ice cold or raining.You will be impressed.

This open air museum is wonderfully located within the Royal Summer Palace estate. The highlight attraction is the Stave church built in 1030. Our disappointment was the staff were less informed (than Skansen staff) and few of the buildings were open. We were in and out in 30 minutes. So not good value for our learning dollar!

This is a must see when in Norway. Very impressive life-like sculptures telling their story. The atmosphere is awesome on Sunday afternoons.

A very interesting museum that must be seen in connection with the Vigeland Park - just across the road. Why not visit the Park and Museum the same day? The Park is perfect for a stroll on a fine day...

This was a small and average museum, showcasing some the works and sketches made by Gustav Vigeland, a master sculpture. There was perhaps around 8-10 rooms here displaying the works made during his lifetime and the evolution of his sculptures. Do visit if you happen to be around the area to have a better context of the park nearby.

A nice tram ride on a number 12 tram to the gate of the Vigeland park. Not knowing what to expect, I was bowled over by the number of sculptures and the architecture of this famous park. If you are of a certain age, 67 I think, you pay only half price for museums but you can also buy a... More

Every time i am in Oslo, this park is my hideaway. Meditation, relaxation. Statues like alive. You can spend hours there. Taking pictures from all sides. Beautiful fountains with rainbows in the drops. Even rainy day won't upset you when there. Summer full of bbq smell, capoeira dancers. Great time out there.
