The park is open to visitors all year round.The unique sculpture park is Gustav Vigeland's lifework with more than 200 sculptures in bronze, granite and wrought iron. Vigeland was also in charge of the design and architectural layout of the park. The Vigeland Park was mainly completed between 1939 and 1949. Most of the sculptures are placed in five units along an 850 meter long axis: The Main gate, the Bridge with the Children's playground, the Fountain, the Monolith plateau and the Wheel of Life.

A beautiful outdoor sculpture garden donated by Vigeland. All his sculptures have to do with the cycle of life, from birth to death. Wonderful images and a fantastic theme. Park is also lovely. A nice walk but lots of steps.

The museum is dedicated to Gustav Vigeland. He used the building as a workingplace for creating the sculptures for the park. Afterwards the building became a museum. It's well worth exploring as it shows other works by Vigeland, both drawings and paintings. And how he...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!
