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.

Popular museum with a historical and artistic perspective on Vigeland and his vision for his outdoor sculptures and park. Must see if you are in OSLO.

The main reason I’ve given this a ‘poor’ is that there was ice on the steps to the entrance. There is absolutely no reason for that. The woman behind the ticket desk was just as icy. If you’ve been to the park, which I had,...More

Hi! Yes, you can take tram number 12. It leaves from the tram stop called Kontraskjæret, a 2-minute walk from the cruise pier (walk towards city hall), and stops right outside the entrance to the park. Enjoy!
