The statues in the park are worth a visit and provide some good photo opportunities. I imagine they would best be visited on a sunny day, not a rainy overcast day like when we visited (although there are then less people to ruin your photo's!). Not being big into sculptures the park offered the chance for some photo's and that... More

If you are in Oslo - hopefully on a relatively sunny day - this is a greatly recommended outdoor venue to visit!

At 45 hectares, Frogner Park is the largest park in the city of Oslo, and is the world’s largest sculpture park made by a single artist. Frogner Park is highly recommended to see if you visit Norway. It is free to enter and is open to the public.

The Frogner Park is just next to the Vigeland Park, so you should definitely go and see both. It's a very nice place, all the statues are just so interesting, so it's great to take your time and have a good look at every single one. Plus from the top of the park you have quite nice view over the... More

Frogner Park Sculptures were really incredible and definately worth an hour or more to examine. However, the park was huge and had a lack of restrooms. The Tram stops right at the entrance which is great. And there is no fee to go in.

Apart from the sculptures, the park also offers s various other sites like the manor, open air baths and a whole lot more.... More

You should plan to visit this huge and amazing park when you go to Oslo..Vigeland's statues are wonderful, and you can spend lot of time by taking pictures of them and of the great view surrounding them! I wouldn't go there in rainy days,'cause there's no chance to repair anywhere except that in the coffee at the entrance of the... More
