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.

Huge sculpture park! The most beautiful park I've ever seen in a city. Sculpures, fountains, nature...The sculpures are so weird but in the same time so nice. If you visit Oslo, you must definitely go to Vigeland Park. Wear comfortable shoes and enjoy!

The evening was warm and pleasant. As we strolled through the park people were enjoying picnics, games and family time . A concert was taking place and hundreds of bicycles were parked up - a sight in itself. The statues lined the central path and led to a monumumental staue that needs to be seen to be a ppreciated. It... More

Just take your time and go through park paying attention to light playing with sculptures. Notice how expressions change on a stone faces because of light... I hope you are lucky with sun. My favorite are sculptures of old people.

Absolutely astounding to discover the sheer amount of work that went into Vigeland Parken/Frogner Park and its sculptures. The story behind it's construction and sentiment is well worth discovering as it makes you respect the beauty of the final piece all the more. I rate the museum a 3 as I found it extremely park-sculpture-centric, in the sense that I... More

Definitely worth a visit if you're in Oslo. The sculptures and sheer amount of work that went into Vigeland Parken/Frogner Park is something worth seeing. The story behind the sculptures can be sensed and understood even without going to Vigeland Museum. I'd mark the sculptures and centre of the park 5/5. I've only given 3/5 for the park as a... More

What a great park with amazing sculptures. We strolled around for nearly 2 hours to take it all in and we felt very safe the entire time even though it was getting late in the day and there were a lot of people. It is definitely a must in Oslo.

Besides the statues, there is plenty to explore in the park. I like to take left after the bridge with the an Angry Boy, and walk through the wood until I reach the ring road 2. Beautiful scenarios are on the way. Also if you keep walking past the Monolith there is a big ancient and very well preserved cemetery... More

This attraction was the top of my list. Any side you see, you see sculptures. The fountain in the middle, the bridge at entrance all had sculptures. You needed a right attitude to appreciate this art form. The cherry on the cake is the pillar in the middle. It has many sculptures carved together. It is a master piece. The... More

It is worth a visit. We went there on a thundery day with showers, but if anything this just enhanced the impact of the park's feel and the impression of the sculptures.
