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.

If the statues in this park and the people that frequent it are any indication of the culture in Norway, I would say this place is freaky kinky weird. Joggers, young couples, parents, babies and a few tourists all walk around staring at naked men, women, and babies in several different poses. The entire bridge is basically capturing a fun... More

I got to the park via train (Skoyen station) and then bus #20. If you took the train, just show your train ticket to the bus driver and he would not charge you. Park is free and a perfect place for photo taking. If you need to go to the bathroom, however, you have to pay 10 NOK but be... More

I spent a few hours here, just wandering and admiring the views. The statues are truly beautiful and unique. It isn't just a statue museum - it's a large and gorgeous park. It's free and well worth the time. If you are visiting Oslo, you absolutely must go to Vigelandsparken!

This is an impressive park, full of amazing sculptures. It is also for free, so you cannot miss it! This is one of the most visited monuments of the city and, as soon as you visit it, you will understand why.

This is a very unique 'park' with over 200 sculptures done by Gustav Vigeland. As parks go, it is definitely unusual with all its granite, bronze and forged iron sculptures so it is well worth a visit. It is lovely to walk around the park which is quite extensive, if the weather is good and there are quite a few... More

The Vigeland Museum is located near the park and holds additional treasure and historical information relating to the master artist. While I thought the museum artwork and stories were magnificent, the management of the museum was in terrible shape. I would go here again, just to admire Vigeland's work, however, the museum needs to get their act together. The front... More

I adores these amazing sculptures of life. Could have spent much longer wandering in beautiful parkland. Worth making time to visit. I went with my husband and grown up children in their twenties and we all appreciated the moments of life that the sculptures encompassed.
