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.

The museum contains a lot of sculptures which are quite different from the what one would fine in other museums. That said, none of the sculptures really captivated me and overall I was not very impressed with it.

We took the double decked bus and got to Vigeland. Gardens are awesome and the sculptures everywhere make this place magical, beautiful and full of artwork. Perfect for enjoying nature and taking pictures, be ready for a long walk.

Don't bother paying for this unless you are SUPER interested in the story of the sculptures...not worth the money when the museum in the main park is so good and free when we visited on the weekend.

It is so cold in March that you cannot appreciate the art as one should. But he was an amazing artist. I would recommend guided tour.

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!
