    Nice place
    This museum really gave a lot more depth to the Vigeland Sculpture Park. The receptionist could not have been friendlier to answer all of our questions. And it was fun to see artists at the museum doing their work. Would highly recommend after you visit the park itself.

    Extraordinary and Atmospheric Museum of Great Artist
    In the several rooms of this interesting museum are presented sculptures and models that were created by well-known Norwegian artist Gustav Vigeland. There are concepts of sculptures that are now part of the bridge, fountain and obelisk in the park in Frogner in Oslo. Furthermore, in the museum are also several models that were never realised on the full scale (some of them showing Vigeland's visions of heroes of sagas and Eddic poems).

    Combine With Trip to the Park
    Included in Oslo pass, this is worth checking out, especially in conjunction with touring the park next door. A lot of the work here seems to be workups and models of the future sculptures you will find in the park. We were here on a Saturday afternoon and we were the only people in the entire museum. The entire museum can easily be seen in less than an hour.

Nice museum to see before visiting the park for some contex and background. Vigeland was very prolific so there is a lot to see. Museum was quite empty when we went

It is free to enter if you have the Oslo pass. It was awesome to see different sculpture. I would highly recommend it. I bought a seat warmer there and it was made in Norway.

Fabulous. Don’t miss the rest of the park after seeing the fabulous sculptures. Now I must use at least 100 characters.

I visited the Vigeland Museum in Oslo on a recent trip and was disappointed. The museum is dedicated to the work of Gustav Vigeland, a Norwegian sculptor who is considered one of the most important artists of the 20th century. However, I found the museum to be overcrowded, poorly curated, and lacking in any real context for Vigeland's work.

The museum is home to over 200 sculptures by Vigeland, but they are all crammed into a small space. This makes it difficult to appreciate the individual sculptures, and it also makes the museum feel very claustrophobic.

Wandered in here after seeing the sculptures in the park and it really added to the context of the experience. Compact and doesn’t take a lot of time but informative and well presented, was really interesting to see after seeing the statues to learn more about the artist and the builds.

The open air museum - whether sunny or cloudy - is a magnificent experience. One appreciates the dedication of this sculptor and his flair for fun. Our public bus ride was also an adventure, and a walk afterward in the charming neighborhood that bordered the parkland was lovely. This should be a must-see when in Oslo!
