Vigeland Museum, Oslo

4.6
#1 of 694 in Museums in Norway
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.

  • I will recommend that place to everyone! It's a "must seen" place on your list if you want to go to Oslo! Fantastic sculptures and that amazing park next to the museum with the monolith in the very centre with a breathtaking views. This is where you will see the famous sculpture of a naked boy screaming and stamping his foot - Sinnataggen. You will never regret it.
  • One of the best museums I’ve been too. The sculptures are astonishing. It also features the work of other sculptors.
