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 visited here as part of a cruise ship excursion and was amazed at the size of the park. You can definitely spend a couple of hours here. However, our tour didn't and we mainly walked down the center where the sculptures, fountain, and monolith were. Although we walked up all the steps to the monolith, there is supposed to... More

Need to pay to enter. There are many sculptures by Vigeland himself and also some other special collections by another artist. Good to visit after spending some time at Vigelandsparken.

I'll spare the reader my interpretation of the sculptures. This is a great place to visit, the beauty and serenity offered by the gardens alone are reasons enough to call this one of Oslo's best attractions. Take the kids, yes, but don't let them rush you through. They may be a bit uncomfortable with the 'naked people,' as my 9-year... More

Great experience when you visit Oslo, both the Park for the stunning artwork and sculptures, and the Museum for the history. The Park is easily walk-able from the cruise terminal, be prepared for lots of buses and people visiting, however you can just take your time and wander around enjoying and examining the artwork.. Pay toilets available.

We arrived there early evening (7pm) in June, which was still quite bright. Located in Frogner area in Oslo, this is a relaxing place where you could sit down for a few hours enjoying all kinds of interesting sculptures by Vigeland - we were pleasantly surprised.

I hadn't heard about Vigeland Park but was looking forward to the Munch Museum. While this was excellent, I have to say the Vigeland Park was the most memorable. I visited twice in my 3 night stay...just too great a place not to. Easy to get to as well...just a couple of tube stop s.

Thoroughly enjoyed the park. Lovely exhibition by Mattias Harenstam while we were there. Thought the sculptures in and out were tremendous. Staff did stalk us a bit though. We must have looked dodgy.

There are hundreds of stone sculptures of men, women and children in this famous park all created nearly 100 years ago. The museum shows how they were made, where the special stone came from and who was the sculptor and designer of the park. Historically fascinating, but also good just to see the other visitors or have a walk around... More
