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

  • Beautiful way to understand and appreciate the brain and brawn behind the amazing sculptures and beauty of Vigeland park.

  • There are more statues that were not featured out in the park. Great for hardcore sculpture / art fans, but may not be super interesting, as many of the pieces are already featured in the park. The sculptures not featured in the park deal with dark subject matter like oppression and death, so it may not be appropriate for young children.

  • A gorgeous park with stunning depictions of humanity in statue form. It was a highlight of my trip to Norway.

  • Best experience I had in Oslo. There are many sculptures and a few are massive. Go before visiting the part located nearby to gain some perspective to the art.

  • Disturbing sculptures, unless you are into naked men, women, and kids mixed together in all possible possitions yuk
