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.

Visited in December with a tour group. Not the most idea month weather-wise, nor perhaps the most ideal way to visit. That said, this is a fabulous and fascinating place. The city tour guide offered many insights into Vigeland and his work, although it seemed to speak for itself. It does require walking and being outdoors to see the various... More

It was very interesting and larger than I thought it would be. The statues are laid out very nice and it's a beautiful display.

I arrived in the park on evening. I'm not saying the map on Trip Advisor had to abandon because we increased the trail a few kilometers ... We were walking! I was surprised that it was poorly lit and only in certain areas that were placed sculptures. Even those that seemed important in light had too few seats. In conclusion,... More

Some travellers recommend Vigeland Park because it is a free attraction. No; this is not the point. Even if it had a fee it would be deserved; because the sculptures are impressive. Vigeland has been an outstanding sculptor portraying the ages of man, feelings like affection, love, hate ea through bronze and stone. It is among the most precious heritage... More

As much as I love art, I'm never really touched by it. But these works had a huge impact, it actually made me sad to think I might never see them again, that's never happened to me before!

The park celebrates the artistry of Vigeland, a magnificent sculptor. As the majority of the statues are outdoors try and plan for a day with good weather. The park is large and also has lots to see. If the weather is right, pack a lunch its a great setting to enjoy the scenery, Be aware that the majority of the... More

You should visit this museum of Vigeland's work in conjunction with the display of his art in the nearby park. The museum gives perspective to the monumental work that went into the park.

We visited Vigeland on our trip to Oslo in 2016, and was totally happy with the visit. Vigeland have many sculptures to show, all the ones, that are not present in the park. So a visit to the Vigeland Park will usually end up with a visit to Vigeland Museum too, because those two are connected, and tells a whole... More
