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.

I haven't been to the museum so I'm not suggesting not to go, but the park is Amazing! I love European sensuality and expression of the naked human body.

Here you can understand how the statues were born and made. It is a must also to visit the Vigeland park just across the street, where you can see many sculptures, including the famous "Sinnataggen"!

A beautiful fresh Oslo day - good clear skies meant we got many beautiful photographs of the memorable statues. Not crowded or noisy just good fun to walk around and stare. It's free! We went to the little cafe too for good hot coffee and a doughnut thing with cardamom custard in it. Won't forget this place, really glad we... More

If you want to see how all those magnificent statues in the park came to life, then head across the street to this museum! Highly recommended.

Went to this park as part of an organised Bus Tour (H.M.K. Sightseeing) and I feel this enhanced the trip as so much of it was explained to us. As it was March, a lot of the park was in "winter mode" (fountains not working, rose bushes protected by hessian) however this did not detract from the park, or the... More

The park is lovely as a park, lots of nice trails and little knolls. The statues however, are something else. It is no surprise that the man was a fascist, his statues reflect this, got a creepy vibe from them.

We wanted to walk outside on a beautiful day and opted to visit this park and see the sculptures. We didn't know much about it, but that didn't matter, the sculptures speak for themselves. They are beautiful......all of the human figures - men, women, children in different poses-together. There is also a small museum but it was closed by the... More
