This place!!! Wow, I cannot express how beautiful and how it touch your heart. It shows the path from gestational to elderly and eventually death. The surroundings are beautiful, the story is so well illustrated. Is so worth it.

I visited here on a winter evening. The atmosphere with the beautiful sculptures were eerie, and somehow perfect. Very calming.

Very few visitors in spite of an excellent museum with well presented history, amazing art, a gigantic production. The only drawback was somewhat cool temperature in the museum.

We saw the outdoor sculptures first and then happened upon the museum. It had many of the plaster casts of sculptures we had seen, plus information on the sculptor and casts of many of his other works. A great supplement to your Vigeland Park experience....More

Amazing park with 132 statues. The reason they are all naked is that the artist realised that they would be timeless. Looking at them you can't depict the era as there are no clothes. Amazing statues when you touch them you can feel the backbone...More

It was nice to see how the Norwegians lived throughout the centuries. They provide information ranging from live on a farm to live in the city. They also have a cool church and re-created village to explore. A definite must to learn about the country...More

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!
