About
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 fantastic workshop-Museum of the great sculpturer Gustav Vigeland. 'The blueprints' of Gustav Vigeland - the master of all the sculptures in the Vigelandsanlegget - aka Frognerparken. Right on the other side of the road.

Incredible sculpture park. So many in red ales poses in one place. Kids hated it but you can’t please everyone. Absolutely worth a visit.

I've lived in Oslo for 30 years. Now I livee abroad. When I go back there these days to visit family and friends, I just "have to" go to the Vigeland Park and drop by the museum. Feel like a tourist in my old home town, but love it.

We walked from the Radisson..a long but easy stroll...very much worth it...it’s a small park but the sheer volume of sculptures by the same artists is stunning & a photographers dream. Caught the tram back to the opera house for sunset. Go!⭐️

This a great park, and very unique. The sculptures are like none other. The entire experience allows you the time to take in the beauty and to try to piece the story of the sculptures together. I highly recommend this visit!

This is an interesting experience to then visit the Frogner park with different eyes. Unfortunately, the information on site are still relatively poor. In addition, the place is quite noisy (people chatting and laughing out loud), and the staff seems not to care. The museum shop is quite disappointing.

Really interesting Sculpture Park. Thought-provoking and especially special in the winter as the frost melts on the statues to craft extra texture.
