Located in Oslo’s romantic Frogner Park, the Vigeland installation (also known as the Vigeland Sculpture Park) is Norway’s most popular tourist attraction.
It has more than 200 life-sized sculptures in bronze, granite and wrought iron. An evergreen contrast to Oslo’s booming new chapter, represented by hyper-modern architecture like the Snøhetta designed opera house and the distinct Barcode skyline.
Created by Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland, it is regarded as the world’s largest sculpture park made by one single artist and draws between 1 and 2 million visitors each year. This tour takes you on a meticulous exploration of both the park and Gustav Vigeland’s own life throughout two intriguing hours of art and history.
Learn about the park’s massive and breathtaking sculptures, like the 56 feet tall «Monolith» and the world famous «Sinnataggen» («The Angry Boy»), as well as fascinating personal trivia about the artist himself. Our walk comes to an end as we cross the street to the Vigeland Museum. Here you will experience the original collection of plaster and clay sculptures, in addition to Vigeland’s private apartment and workspace – left precisely how it was upon his passing in 1943.
The Vigelands museum is closed on Mondays and entrance fee is nok 120,- for adults and nok 60,- for children. If you have the Oslopass the entrance is free.
