With over 200 bronze, granite and cast-iron sculptures created by artist Gustav Vigeland (1869-1943), the impressive Vigeland Park is the world’s largest single-artist sculpture park. Even with the scale of his works and the rolling park as a backdrop, Vigeland’s emotionally charged human forms have an intimacy about them. The most popular sculptures on display are The Little Angry Boy, Monolith and Wheel of Life. The nearby Vigeland Museum further reveals the artist and his life’s work.

Norway’s best free tourist attraction, this sculpture park presents the life’s work of Norwegian artist Gustav Vigeland. More than 200 of his bronze, granite, and wrought iron sculptures are on display. You can walk through Vigeland's menagerie in just 10 minutes, or spend hours strolling around the eerie sculptures, many of which take human form. (At night, the park falls silent and the snow-covered statues whisper their secrets to you.) Don’t miss the famous monolith made from a single piece of granite, the Oslo City Museum, and the glorious Frogner Manor House filled with paintings and furnishings from the 1800s.
