“Very interesting sculptures.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

We walked through the park and followed the commentary from Rick Steves' Scandinavia tour book. Excellent way to spend an hour.

“Art in the Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

I loved that Oslo was full of art everywhere you look. I also paid to go to the Vigeland Museum, which I did not like as much as the free sculptures you can enjoy in the park. A great place for a picnic if it's warm enough!

“Babes to old folks in stone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We toured this sculpture garden with a group and a guide who gave us a bit of background on the sculptor and some of the sculptures. It was beautifully laid out so we never felt crowded, even on a June day in tourist season. The human figures looked so lifelike yet concrete-looking. Our guide wondered about his use of so many children, since Vigeland did not have a relationship with his own. The trees representing various stages of life were interesting, but the most intriguing part for me was the series of poses on different levels all around the large fountain. One could spend quite a bit of time there with no time constraints.

“A walk in the park surrounded by a concentration of sculptures”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

A lovely location to spend an hour or two. Have lunch on one of the seats. We took the 13 tram from the Ibsen museum (buy tickets at any 7-11 - day tickets last 24 hours and are better value if you do at least 3 trips). It was hot on the day so we didn't spend too long admiring each sculpture. Oslo is peppered with sculptures and this park has a large number in a small area, along with a phallic symbol. Of course, it's free.
