We visited Oslo as part of the Radisson cruise ship voyage around the Baltic Sea. This park has many sculptures by Gustav Vigeland. What took us by surprise is the size of this park - it is massive! This means that you need to spend...More

This sculptor must have been working round the clock to generate so many ideas for poses and then either make them himself or instruct others to do so. Also amazing that the city of Oslo had given him a studio and accommodation in order that...More

We spent a half day looking at the amazing sculptures, walking the grounds and embracing the ambience and the sculptural architecture. This was a tremendous experience in winter, and I imagine that in summer it will be equally beautiful!

Spend a day here. Go on a nice day and just walking around the park the go to the Museum just after lunch time and see how it is all done. Just remember this park was originally made for upperclass.

This museum was conveniently located and enjoyable on a cold winter afternoon. The public bus system was perfect for getting us to the area. The museum was in a historic building and had very diverse exhibits. The audiotours in English were also helpful. The cafe...More
