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 hadn't heard about Vigeland Park but was looking forward to the Munch Museum. While this was excellent, I have to say the Vigeland Park was the most memorable. I visited twice in my 3 night stay...just too great a place not to. Easy to get to as well...just a couple of tube stop s.

Thoroughly enjoyed the park. Lovely exhibition by Mattias Harenstam while we were there. Thought the sculptures in and out were tremendous. Staff did stalk us a bit though. We must have looked dodgy.

There are hundreds of stone sculptures of men, women and children in this famous park all created nearly 100 years ago. The museum shows how they were made, where the special stone came from and who was the sculptor and designer of the park. Historically fascinating, but also good just to see the other visitors or have a walk around... More

OSLO is very clean and organised. This park is not different! It is quite easy to get there. And it is definitely worth it. Every sculpture is a surprise. I loved this place. Definitely recommend it to all ages.

An amazing park made even more beautiful by all the sculptures. To truly understand the man, his work, and how he created the sculptures it is well worth visiting the museum as well. It is free if you have the Oslo Pass.

The park is spanning a large area, there are unique sculptures. There is a playground for kids and a small cafe which is very overpriced. Visit museums before visiting this place

The sculpture park was Interesting in an unsettling sort of way. What was going on in that man’s head?

The park is an open air museum displaying more than 200 sculptures of the Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigneland. Being surrounded by all these bare human figures create a unique experience. Stralling in the park on a sunny day is a very pleasant experience, so lovely that you wouldn't mind that the statues often have some brutality in them. Walk up... More
