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.

The park with its hundred plus sculptures was spectacular. The emotion evoked by Vigeland through the large granite carvings is hatd to put in words. The parkland itself is a work of art, too. A must see when in Oslo.

This is a open air museum in a park that is so nice to visit. The main attraction are the beautiful statues made by Vigeland that are on display that seem to be so alive that it feels they would start moving and start talking.

The museum presents works of Vigeland, who created the statues which can be seen in the Vigeland park, as well as his working methods. If you are a fan of the statues in the park, a visit is probably very interesting. If you are not,...More

We went here on a sunny afternoon, and the park was crowded but still pleasant to walk around. The statues were really quite impressive with their very human looks. A wonderful experience.

This is the one place you must see in Oslo, bit of a dull modern city. This park is beautiful with sculptures, themed as the circle of life.

An amazing park with incredible sculptures. The park is huge. It reminds me of a European Central Park. A must see for art lovers.

See my review of Vigelund park. The two should be seen together. The museum has excellent notes ( in English) in each room so you can learn about the art and artist. The upstairs part was not so great- you could easily skip it

If you go to the park first with all the crowds then go to the museum you get to see the plaster casts of the sculptures up close in all their detail in peace and quiet. There are toilets there but no refreshments so have...More

Someone said there is currently construction at the park. We are visiting in the end of May. How is the construction affecting the view of the sculptures?

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

Yes, the park is open, accessible and worth the visit. There are several beautiful buildings in it, as well as nice views and sunsets.

I will be arriving on the Regal Princess on June 5. Is there public transportation from the pier to Vigeland Park?

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!
