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.

If you want to learn more about Vigeland or the process of sculpture then this is a good place, perhaps less so for the general tourist though on a hot day it would make a cool escape from the heat. As with many tourist sites...More

Did not expect to be so charmed by a collection of sculptures- very through provoking and deeply humane. Perfect for a long stroll in the sunshine. Definitely a must see

If you go to Oslo, this is a must. Plus, it's free. Doesn't get any better than that. The statues are very thought provoking.

Indoor museum isn't so good, but outdoor museum is very interesting, to see how people lived through the years in Norway. This place is great during summer.

This entire complex is wonderful. If you are an art lover I would recommend visiting the museum - there is a moderate admission fee, but the museum really helps one understand the artist and his work. It would be easy to spend half a day...More

We loved the sculpture garden. Recommend it. Takes approximately 2 hours if you are simply going through.

Some weeks ago half of the main sculpture was under reconstruction, so that part was completely inaccessible. A week ago they were working on another part, but it was possible to walk around. It is not a good view when all... 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!
