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 subject matter of the sculptures is unusually candid look at life and parenting. I was particularly amused at the squabbling kids, some literally riding their mother's back with a rope in her mouth for reins. Not the sweetness we are accustomed to, but definitely worth an hour or two in Oslo. A bus from downtown goes right to it,... More

Worth a visit whilst you are visiting the park. Not massive, but the pieces on display are impressive and gives more of the background behind the park.

Views from the museum grounds, which of and by itself is impressive enough, were great, but the scuptures themselves were downright depressing. No wonder he is not known outside Norway. If you go for a nice walk, this museum is perfect. Just don't look at the sculptures.

The first time we visited the park and museum was early evening. The park was quiet and we saw a beautiful sunset. The sculptures are amazing and well worth a visit. So much so we went back the following day. This was a Sunday, a lovely sunny day and the park was packed. Despite this we still enjoyed our visit

Were under incorrect impression it's a collection of artists' sculptures. For us, only the iron gates were beautiful; the body proportions & activity depictions of the statues disturbing

We visited this park to see all the sculptures . However the park seemed to only showcase one particular artist,. The sculptures were nice , but I expected to see the work of various artists. Also these works I found to be a little creepy, naked adults and children together embracing etc... The park is bettered suited for all the... More

Our group went there not to go into the museum but to see all the statues in various poses that line the bridge. If you are looking for the 'Angry Baby', it is on the two rows that are on the bridge but set back little bit. These are statues showi the human form sans any clothing.

We arrived early afternoon on this cold day. There were very few people. We spent about 45 minutes viewing the two rows of interesting sculptures doing normal activities. They were anatomically correct as are many of the European statues. Some people might find the embracing statues offensive. The most famous statue is the Angry Baby (Angry Boy).
