Simply amazing! I knew nothing about this man before my visit to Oslo, now I'm obsessed. This is a real insight into a true master's working process. There is also an unexpected weaving exhibition by the artist Aurora Passero, which was equally amazing and a nice contrast to the hard sculptures of Vigeland. Great value for money, I thoroughly recommend you all visit, only downside is no great catalogues available to buy...they are all a bit 90s.
Small but fantastic museum with some truly unique statues from a few time periods with many artists. Highly recommend coming here and spending some time to marvel at both the small and large artifacts. The museum is laid out extremely logically by time period and category and the reusable museum map is well made and reduces waste.
Interesting museum for those who have been to the park. It is possible to learn more about the sculptor and his creations. There are plenty of information including on the monolith assembly. Since it is just by the park, it is worth visiting both altogether. It is the most interesting museum in Oslo, even more than the one on vikings, in my humble opinion.
Beautiful park in the heart of Oslo. Excellent for walks and has a beautiful lake.
There are more statues that were not featured out in the park. Great for hardcore sculpture / art fans, but may not be super interesting, as many of the pieces are already featured in the park. The sculptures not featured in the park deal with dark subject matter like oppression and death, so it may not be appropriate for young children.
Glad that it was still open when I was walking to the park. If you got the pass ticket a visit it's worthy. I arrived 30min before the closure and it give me a quick opportunity to experience the sculptures displayed in the park. Walking through the room give you a magic effect that you won't get while working around the park.
Amazing example of his work. The statues are very animated, and entertaining to look at. Inside is the models for the much larger scale outside statues.
If you like Vigeland park then you must visit this museum which shows Vigelands models used for sculptures and also other stuff related to this sculpturer.
If you walk through the park and see all the sculptures I don't think you need to see this museum. There are some pieces that aren't in the park but most are the same. There also isn't that much info on each piece. I wish I could have learned more.
The Vigeland park is understandably popular. The museum has the plaster versions of all those statues and shows you how that great art was achieved, and you have the place almost to yourself.
