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.

Amazing park but very abstract. Its cool to see that alot of this art is really about families and at the same time reflex how life really is.

This museum is not open for very long hours in the winter so we had to go back twice before we caught it open (this is our lack of attention to detail, it is open when it says it will be); it was well worth going back for. It is fascinating to see how the sculptures are made and to... More

We visited this park without expecting much and we were overwhelmed by the philosophy behind the art work, the beauty of the sculpture, and the wonderful depiction of the circle of life! From the gate all the way to the other gate, the Vigeland did not fail to surprise and enthrall its visitors. We were lucky to have a former... More

Visited this lovely part of Oslo as part of a short stay in the city in a relatively mild winter. The snow was still on the ground which added to the experience as this is a real treat with over a hundred statues to hunt down across the park. Most flock inevitably to 'angry Boy' as it's the most famous,... More
