At Vigeland Museum, walk through the largest park of oversized expressionist sculptures of people made by a single artist. Constructed of granite, bronze, and wrought iron, 200 nude statues portray men, women, children, and families. The park and the museum are the legacy of an early 20th-century Norwegian artist, Gustav Vigeland, who made a deal with the municipality to donate all of his work to the city in return for a workshop. The sculpture garden features five sections stretching from the main gate to the monolithic plateau. Look for the famed "angry baby" sculpture on the bridge near the children's playground. Vigeland's other works, including drawings, sketches, woodcuttings, and photographs can be seen in the neoclassical building of the museum along with his letters, writings, and a personal library.

  • The Museum of Norway sculptor weegelan. Was a strange feeling, such as how to exhibit characteristic, without any commentary, also relate to the sculptures together meaningfully. Wi Galan National Park from the second half of the exhibition, worked on his sculptures and exactly the same works are exhibited. From the Park, especially monolitten (sculpture, such as the Tower in the center of the Park) is divided into three parts and, at up to each and every one of you can find. But more impressive was the last room. Red Room discreetly half-naked old man sculpture in Brown and an indescribable feeling. (Metro "Majorstuen" station, 15 min. walk. Or tram 12 numbers: Vigalandsparken station, 5 minutes walk)

  • I totally recommend to visit this museum before going to the Vigeland Park and see the original sculptures. Not only because Vigeland himself worked and lived inside this beautiful building, but because the enormous dimensions of his plaster sculptures can be seen closer than in the park and the history of the artist can be learned easily, which is really worth to be known too.
  • Fantastic architecture, exhibitions interesting and a nice complement to a trip to the Vigeland park.
  • This is amazing place, which you should visit! Excellent park, nice statutes, green view and fountains. All this will give you amazing relaxing experience.
  • If you do not have time to walk all Vigeland park in here you can watch all sculptures under roof
  • It is the Museum of the Park of the cycle of life where you can find more sculptures of that style. Besides that is large enough
