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.

This park consists of numerous statues of naked people, but not in a pornographic way. The recurring theme is "life cycle". The Vigeland Park is named after the creator, Gustaf Vigeland. You can relax on the grass, bring a picnic basket or a ball, and the park is just perfect for a lazy summer day.

If you've already visited the Vigeland park, the museum will give you the depth of his work. All of the workshops before the finished work (that you can see in the park) are all here. Overall, cool stuff!

The park itself is quite big however the majority of Vigeland's sculptures are near the main entrance. The sculptures are very impressive both by scale and by beauty. The fountain is stunning. The Iron fences are great design too.

We live in Oslo and take all our visitors to this amazing park. The sculptures depict real people of all ages and I especially love how Vigeland has captured old age. This is a must for visitors to Oslo, an oasis in the heart of the city.

Worth the trip. Free to get in but they charge to use the bathroom. Take a picture with the famous angry baby. You may have to wait but jump in when you get a chance! Beautiful flowers and fountain among the statues. Get creative when you take pictures with them!

On a whistlestop tour of Oslo this was my first stop. Heading for a sculpture park I wasn't expecting the glorious setting of the park itself. Green, well kept and large. A real oasis. Wasn't expecting the sculptures either. I thought they'd be a variety of different things but they were all nudes and the sculpture area was smaller than... More

Amazing set of sculptures, fountain, park with a nice view. And its FREE...its open throughout the day/night. We went to this park late in the night around 11PM and there was enough light around. So it was nice walk and looking around the sculptures. Good place for testing your photography skills too.

In this green oasis a bit out of the city centre, you'll find the lovely, huge park, where you can relax, watch all the sculptures, enjoy a cup of coffee and just hang out. You'll see lots of tourists of course, but also locals who like to use this wonderful park. If sculptures of nude people offends you, you better... More
