Actually a mausoleum, this unusually-shaped building is decorated inside with an 800 square meter fresco which took Emanuel Vigeland 20 years to paint.

Emanuel Vigelands mausole is oslo's most secret art-experience. Just a couple of opening hours every sunday, hidden amongst villas on the West - the building and paintings on the wall gives you a sacral meeting with death and fear of ones mind - and the...More

Not for everyone, but we went there as a family (9 year old girl in tow), took our time as suggested and were rewarded with a fascinating experience. It is only one room, the paintings and sculptures are rather graphic (depicting the cycle of life,...More

A stunning experience, total quiteness, existencial experience, erotic images, stay for at least so long tha your eyes get accostomised to the dark and so that all the art appears. The museum is open only on Sunday afternoons, so plan your trip!

This museum is a must if you're visiting Oslo. It's magical. I won't say more as to not spoil the experience, but if you're into art this place is it!

If you want an experience out of the ordinary you need to get to this museum. Calling it a museum is a bit odd, as it is a "frescoed mausoleum". You get through a small door and into one great hall where the dark and...More
