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.

Most tourists don't know of this site, and it's a shame. The park is teeming with people of all ages enjoying the striking sculptures and their setting. I strongly recommend a guide or guide book so you can get the most understanding of what Vigeland was portraying. Predominant themes are cycle of life, love, parenthood, yes he includes fathers relateung... More

Wow! Mr Vigeland was a prolific and hugely talented sculpture. His legacy of the Vigeland park and its beautiful sculptures, gardens, fountains and waterways is simply magic. I spent a half sunny day walking through the park and then the museum which is definitely worthwhile as it answers a great many questions..

Our visit to vigeland was on a bright sunny day, which contrasted to five days of cold and rain before hand, so we were already quite happy on arrival. The grounds and sculptures are simply amazing. Accompanied by a knowledgeable guide, we saw and heard most interesting stories about the sculptor and his work. This place is a must see... More

We strolled along the beautiful outdoor walkway and viewed the statues on a picture-perfect summer day in Oslo. Each statue evokes memories in the viewer of their own childhood, and it is a powerful experience. The area was not crowded that day so we had a simply splendid time getting a sense of what Vigeland the sculptor felt about the... More

Wonderful park filled with sculptures by Gustav Vigeland. I really enjoyed walking around looking at the sculptures and people watching. You can get here by bus, taxi, etc. but you can also walk from Central Oslo, maybe 45 minutes or so. There was no entry fee the day that I was there.

An amazing park of sculptures covering all phases of life. Vigeland captures human emotions so well. The park itself is a beautiful place to walk and relax. I highly recommend it. Entry is free.

This is billed as the world's largest collection of sculptures by a single artist. I was amazed at the amount of work Gustav Vigeland produced. The 80 acre park contains all sorts of different sculptures, some that I liked and others that I was not particularly fond of. It was an interesting/ unusual presentation. The boy who is angry was...

I visited the Vigeland in 1986 and again this year. It lost a lot. The place is overcrowded and the statues show signs of molestation. The breasts of the woman-figures are clearly touched my many and I do not think Vigelands idea of this exhibition was this molestation. Several children where climbing on the statues while there parents were watching... More
