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.

I'm not a fan of visiting museums but when I visited this museum I changed my view. An excellent museum with a gallery for the history of Norway and also a museum of reality. Where there is a mini-denature of old life and how Norwegian...More

200 plus life-sized and giant sized bronze and granite sculptures spread over an 80 acre park, nothing like I had ever seen before. If you had to see only one attraction in Oslo, this is it.

The museum's collection comprises Vigeland's early works, his portraits and monuments, as well as plaster models for the sculptures in Vigeland Park. The artist's working process is well-documented in the museum, which also shows changing contemporary art exhibitions.

Essential place to visit in Oslo but ensure you research first so you understand the context of the sculptures and art. Can get crowded. All the sculptures are nude and the screaming baby is a beauty. Not really my thing as it all one artist,...More

Did not expect to be so charmed by a collection of sculptures- very through provoking and deeply humane. Perfect for a long stroll in the sunshine. Definitely a must see

If you go to Oslo, this is a must. Plus, it's free. Doesn't get any better than that. The statues are very thought provoking.

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!
