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.

We were with a tour group but still had time to see everything. The sculptures are fascinating and the gardens beautiful.

Good thing about this park is that it has a free entry and you can take the tram and then walk 1 km to reach the park but the sculptures here are weird and a bit creepy....

The museum is ok, perhaps necessary for sculptors, but this review is all about the park. The depth and variety of human expression is amazing. Joy, anger, love, kinship... So much of everday human experience. Even more was an observation that my wife made. We...More

Great place to walk around and enjoy the sculptures and grounds on a sunny day. Be advised that the sculptures are all naked. If this offends your then skip the park.

Once you visit Vigeland Park and see the wonderful sculptures the museum is a must as it shows the moquettes close up. Interesting building too.

I wish we had more time to explore this park. It has great statues all over and all with good and interesting history. Our guide said there's a huge labyrinth inside. You will also see the angry boy, one of Vigeland's more famous statues.

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!
