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.

Usually, museums show the finished work of the artist. In Vigeland's case, the prolific work ended up in a public park (right next door). This museum focuses on Vigeland's plaster models and process. Unusual and interesting.

After a tour of the city we walked past the Royal Palace and through a residential area to the sculpture park. It was a fairly long walk but absolutely worth it. A beautiful park with an incredible range of sculptures. So good.

Really didn't expect the museum to be so filled with intresting pieces of the artist. A great museum with lots and lots of art. Also the life of the artist is told in detail. Worth visiting!

The museum contains a lot of sculptures which are quite different from the what one would fine in other museums. That said, none of the sculptures really captivated me and overall I was not very impressed with it.

We took the double decked bus and got to Vigeland. Gardens are awesome and the sculptures everywhere make this place magical, beautiful and full of artwork. Perfect for enjoying nature and taking pictures, be ready for a long walk.

Some weeks ago half of the main sculpture was under reconstruction, so that part was completely inaccessible. A week ago they were working on another part, but it was possible to walk around. It is not a good view when all... More

Hi! Yes, you can take tram number 12. It leaves from the tram stop called Kontraskjæret, a 2-minute walk from the cruise pier (walk towards city hall), and stops right outside the entrance to the park. Enjoy!
