Experience Vigeland this summer

Gustav Vigeland's art in the Vigeland Park is experienced by many tourists every summer. Just a short walk south of the Vigeland Park, you will find the Vigeland Museum (Vigelandmuseet), the very best place to learn more about how the park came to be.

For summer guests in Oslo, a visit to the Vigeland Park is almost mandatory, and even though Vigelandmuseet might be Oslo's most beautiful museum (come, and you can decide for yourself), many tourist never find their way to the museum in Nobel's street (gate) 32 at Frogner. This is Gustav Vigeland's former studio and home and was always meant to become a museum after his death. With it's exquisite colors, white plaster originals and beautiful light, the Vigeland Museum represents one of the truly beautiful museums in Norway.

The Vigeland Museum officially opened the doors to the public in 1950. Since then, enthusiasts and art lovers have found their way from the Vigeland Park to the Vigeland Museum to see if the myths told about the great sculptor are really true.
