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 didn't know anything about this place and am so happy for that because my experience was immediate and visceral. Beautiful, unsettling, thought provoking, overwhelming, stunning sculpture after sculpture of humanity. Go feel it

We took an afternoon walk in the garden and were only two among a throng of families, couples, dog walkers and others enjoying a lovely late September day. The statuary by Gustav Vigeland is the world's largest park devoted to a single artist. The 200+ statues depict humanity in all its tenderness and brutality was lovely and yet disturbing. The...

The exhibits were very good , all the information was in English and was clear . The gift shop was naff and the food outlet was basic . We visited by boat and the walk up hill might've been hard going for older people or disabled .

I visited the museum after seeing and spending a few hours in Vigeland Park. Could not be lured by the sculptures as they were the miniatures of the statues and sculptures lying in the park. The museum is small and is nearby the park, well connected by tram and bus.

The park in very big and its a little far from the Oslo City Center so you can take subway to the park. (Use Oslo Pass- its cheaper:) The park is for free and the sculptures are perfect. Hope to find a sunny day:)

This review is for the museum, not the park itself (which I reviewed separately). The museum is just across the street from the park and does charge 60NOK for admission. (The park is, of course, free.) The museum offers a lot of great insight into the background of designing the park and the many sculptures it contains. There are so... More

This place must be a 'Pokemon' hot spot because it was full of teenagers with their phones out. However it's stunning, amazing sculptures, beautifully green!
