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 sculptures are very impressive and it really helps if you read the meaning behind them while visiting each room of the museum.

You see how the artist develloped the statues that are outside, on scale, and a lot more. Not too big, so nice for a visit.

This museum is very fascinating. Most of the sculpturs and models in the museum are the sketches av the real sculpturs out in the Vigeland park. In the museum there is information about the life of Gustaf Vigeland and his work. How he created these magnicifient sculptures. Don't mistake this for the Vigeland park, this is the indoor museum (entrance... More

highly recommend to visit without rain! 如果要去,一定要早啲到,因為實在太早閂門,而sculpture非常多。 Tips係睇左室內先,然後至move去室外。即使閂門後至睇outdoor都冇問題,可以行到天黑,冇人趕。

The location is beautiful. It is a verdant green park. There is plenty of space to walk around and sculptures of humans (adults, young and old) in various postures. There is a monolith in the center of the park that is a composition of intertwined humans like no other. It is a very interesting place and you will see lots... More

This place is staggering! First of all you can get in free which is a rare find in super expensive Norway/Oslo. Then the number of sculptures and the variety of poses. What an imagination! And then there is the layout which is very logical and symmetrical. The park is beautifully kept and seemed popular with all age groups so a... More

The Vigeland Museum is part of Vigeland Park and the building once was the work space of the artist. The museum is not very large but contains a great deal of information about the personal history of the artist, accomplishments and achievements, and the process/workings of completing full size sculptures. Make sure to visit the park and the sculptures after... More
