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.

Great place to stroll for an hour or so or have a picnic lunch in. Leafy grounds and interesting sculptures. I really enjoyed the central fountain with giant men shouldering the water basin, the human form column and the rod iron gate of three women arriving in one side and departing on he other.

As all the hype said, it was a great walk in the park with a large number of interesting statues, the kind that make you think. We were there as the tulips were in bloom and the trees were leaving out which added to the beauty. I'm sure the rest of the year is equally as pretty.

This is a must see park when you're in Oslo. I believe there are over 200 sculptures- it's probably the weirdest park that I've ever visited but it's very interesting.

Probably better off just visiting the park and looking at the sculpture. The museum doesn't add much-it may be the least engaging museum I've ever seen. Go to it if you are a serious student of Vigeland. Just to be clear: I very much recommend the park and the sculpture overall- just not sure what seeing the plaster casts of... More

This museum is a complement to the Vigeland Sculpture Park. I loved walking in the park and watching the human being sculptures over there. The level of details is very good that the sculptures seem to be alive. The garden was full of roses and there was a fountain in the middle of the park. I really recommend to go... More

A very huge park with the sculptures as the main highlights here. Definitely worth a visit especially on a good sunny day.
