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.

This is one of Oslo's most visited sites for both international tourists as well as among the locals. The building's modern architecture is worth a look. Avoid the restaurant since it lacks atmosphere, food is mediocre and seriously over-prized (which says a lot here in Oslo). Do as the locals do: admire the architecture (and maybe one of the scheduled... More

One of the “must see” tourist attractions of Oslo. I don’t understand the various meanings trying to be conveyed by statues, but they are very interesting and show a lot of real life emotion of different stages of humanity. This outdoor museum of impressive sculptures and monuments is free to the public. For the indoor Vigeland Museum there is an... More

We went here on a frosty morning in February and were amazed at the size of the park. It is huge and makes Central Park in New York a tiny backyard! The amount of sculptures are overwhelming and incredible. This is a must see in Oslo. Take the 12 tram and it will drop you at the main entrance. There... More

Vigeland was a prolific sculptor whose work is displayed throughout Oslo. The park that hold many of his pieces is stunning and you could spend hours walking through the park looking at them, which we did. I was even more amazed when I visited the museum and saw the process for making these pieces. All the planning and work that... More

Went on a group tour which included the upstairs apartment which is not usually open to the public. Tour gave a great overview of Vigeland's life and work. Interesting to see the sculptures that are unlike the ones in the park plus see the method of sculpting/casting/carving.

Wonderful maquettes of the ideas that led to the design of Vigeland/Frogner park . The original plaster casts of the bronze sculptures, the models used to carve the sculpture-really a magical place! Wonderful space that is perfect in all seasons

Lovely sculpture park with over 190 pieces totalling 650. There is a little cafe/shop selling refreshments. Well worth a visit.

The Vigeland Park it self is a must-see here in Oslo (and its free). But if you want to learn even more, this is the place for you.
