Parque de esculturas Vigelandsparken

Vigelandsparken Sculpture Park (Kirkeveien, western section of Oslo) – this is a popular park in Oslo, which showcases 192 granite sculptures made by deceased Norwegian sculptor Gustave Vigeland.  The sculptures tend to make statements about life and relationships – ranging from the 14-meter-high column-like sculpture The Monolith, to the Crying Child, The Wheel of Life, and other nude statues.   It’s also the largest sculpture park showcasing artwork made by a single artist.

Also within the park is the Vigeland Museum, which showcases more of the artist’s works and informs visitors of his years working as an artist in Norway.  Admission (to the Museum):  50 NOK (adult), 25 NOK (seniors/students/children).  Free admission for small children.  Hours:  12 pm – 4 pm (daily).  Admission to the park itself is free for all.  See the Museum’s website for more details:  www.vigeland.museum.no
