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.

Replicas of the viking ships were amazing, Very cool artifacts as well. We got the Oslo pass and I highly recommend it, the museum doesn't take too long to go through and then you can pop over the another one easily in the same day. Don't miss it!

It is a nice place to relax and enjoy sunshine (if any) and sculptures. It can be a bit crowded when the weather is nice

Please note that the currently ongoing construction in the main area of the sculpture park may lessen your experience, both visually and your ability to take usefull photographs. That being said, a visit to the the park, open free to the public, is still one of the best things to do in Oslo.

I visited the Vigeland Park on my last day at Oslo. Almost as an afterthought. This is about half hour by bus/tram from the Sentral. But not visiting this place would have been a definite miss. A vast area, sculptures lined up all through the sides, some life sized, expressions, some in action while others pose. Lots of people, but... More

So much fun to leisurely walk through the park and drink in all the incredible, thought-provoking sculptures. After taking my time strolling through and snapping photos, I later slipped on my running shoes and had the time of my life running up and down all the different paths throughout the park and sidewalks of nearby neighborhoods. If you overlook visiting... More

We started off by wandering around the sculpture park next door. It's a beautiful, formal park. In the museum you can see the plaster models of the sculptures in the park and learn the history of Vigeland and how his team planned the park. Well worth a visit.

It's a beautiful park filled with many granite, wrought iron and bronze sculptures, quite different to Gaudi's park Guell in Barcelona, not as crazy, but this has its own charm. Probably one of the best tourist attractions in Oslo. 200 + statues.

200+ statues by Vigeland set in beautiful surroundings. Fascinating seeing the Circel of Life, from babies to old people, unbelievable that this was accomplished in 10 years
