Gustav Vigelands’s sculptures.
It’s the museum’s only reason for being. The artist made a pact with the city to bequeath all his works to this museum on his death; they in turn would provide him an apartment to sculpt in peace.
And sculpt he did - plaster, granite, bronze, marble, works in wrought iron, thousands of drawings for these, and woodcuts and woodcarvings. The museum will let you trace the evolution of his art, including portraits and monuments. Also, do notice the building itself – it’s a stunning example of neo-classicism.
You may find people on folding chairs, sketching away. If you want in on this, the museum will provide you with folding chairs and sketching boards. You can even hire out the venue’s lobby, exhibition halls, lecture hall and courtyard for an event of your own.
But that’s only one half of the attraction – the other is Vigeland Park, the world's largest sculpture park made by a single artist. 200 sculptures set in a landscape that was also designed and laid out by the artist. The Highlights of the park are:
- The Main gate
- The Bridge with the Children's playground
- The Fountain
- The Monolith plateau
- The Wheel of Life
