Vigeland Museum And Park - Review

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

Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Oslo Itinerary 2 Days.

  • Glad that it was still open when I was walking to the park. If you got the pass ticket a visit it's worthy. I arrived 30min before the closure and it give me a quick opportunity to experience the sculptures displayed in the park. Walking through the room give you a magic effect that you won't get while working around the park.

  • Simply amazing! I knew nothing about this man before my visit to Oslo, now I'm obsessed. This is a real insight into a true master's working process. There is also an unexpected weaving exhibition by the artist Aurora Passero, which was equally amazing and a nice contrast to the hard sculptures of Vigeland. Great value for money, I thoroughly recommend you all visit, only downside is no great catalogues available to buy...they are all a bit 90s.

  • If you walk through the park and see all the sculptures I don't think you need to see this museum. There are some pieces that aren't in the park but most are the same. There also isn't that much info on each piece. I wish I could have learned more.

  • Small but fantastic museum with some truly unique statues from a few time periods with many artists. Highly recommend coming here and spending some time to marvel at both the small and large artifacts. The museum is laid out extremely logically by time period and category and the reusable museum map is well made and reduces waste.

  • Amazing example of his work. The statues are very animated, and entertaining to look at. Inside is the models for the much larger scale outside statues.
