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 in Oslo for the day with a cruise ship. I never would have visited the park, but my friends thought the walk would be good, so off we went. The story of the sculpture gardens, the sculptures and the setting are all magnificent. I could see returning time and again if I lived in Oslo, to examine them... More

Having looked round the park we went to the museum, with our Oslo Pass. It's really interesting, enough info to keep you occupied, but not overkill. There's an excellent bit about his process and the different stages. Probably my favourite museum in Oslo! You do have to put your rucksacks in a locker, but they provide you with the coin... More

Just across from the Sculpture Park a tour of the small museum only takes between 30mins & hour but completes the visit to the sculpture park - background on Vigeland, original concept drawings, plaster molds, and other works. Definitely worth the 60K entrance fee.

I have been in to this beautiful garden many times and I never get enough. This is my favourite place in Oslo, and Oslo is beautiful. It is a must see garden.

We have been to the Vigeland Park many times over the years but never been to the museum. Check the address and note that it is outside the park. I found I had to look up the address and use google maps to find it as there are not many signs in the Park. Don't go to the Park thinking... More

Since we were planning to visit Vigeland Park and had valid Oslo Passes, we decided to pop into this museum first to get a feel for Vigeland and his works. It was absolutely a worthwhile stop! Numerous sculptures were on display along with lots of info on Vigeland's life and evolving art. Made us appreciate Vigeland Park much more after... More

Great park to bring the family for an outing or picnic, or just to stroll around and look at the over 200 sculptures. The grounds are green and gorgeous, admission is free, and it's a very pleasant way to spend a few hours.
