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.

The park was great for walking around. The sculptures were really interesting. The famous works of sculpture including the "angry baby" are really a sight to behold and enjoy. Oslo appears to be a city that really loves its sculptures. There were statues of Winston. Churchill, Franklin Roosevelt and many more famous and historical figures. Definitely, a must-see place in... More

I visited Vigeland Museum on Friday 30.12.2016. The Museum is vey interesting, but unfortunately the visit was quite sppiled by unfriendly reception in the ticket boot. The woman attending it was rude and most unfriendly.

Beautiful park to spend half of your day in Oslo, alone, with dog or with kids! You can lay on the warm grass in the July or enjoying cold air in december.

This park and museum presents Norway in many ways. Relaxing to walk, or take a snack, including your own picnic and to enjoy Norwegian finer culture.

There're some cool and some statues that makes you think about the life- if you are interested in art. Otherwise you're basically walking around in a park filled with naked statues. Art wise, sure. If you're not interested in art you're probably better of doing something with more adrenaline kicking involved ! :) On the other hand, everyone goes there... More

Here you can use your feet or a bicycle and have a trip around in the big, big park. Look at the very special sculptures made by Vigeland:Children, young men, women, old people, alone or together, expressing all sorts of feelings, joy, anger, lonelyness, love etc. You can follow a path along the little river. On the grass in the... More

Gustav Vigeland was unknown to us before we arrived in Oslo, so we were amazed at the sheer range and quality of his sculptures - in the park of course (although it was raining) but also in this highly recommended museum dedicated to his work. Stunning.

Visited in December with a tour group. Not the most idea month weather-wise, nor perhaps the most ideal way to visit. That said, this is a fabulous and fascinating place. The city tour guide offered many insights into Vigeland and his work, although it seemed to speak for itself. It does require walking and being outdoors to see the various... More
