The Vigeland Museum, Oslo

The Vigeland Museum is dedicated to the sculptures of Gustav Vigeland, whose creations also adorn Vigeland Park. The museum building is the studio that Vigeland moved into in 1924 with his wife, and he lived there until his death in 1943. The Museum opened in 1947 and has almost all of his work, including the original plaster casts of the sculptures in Vigeland Park.

Vigeland Sculpture Park, Oslo

One extremely bright and sunny day I headed out to the Vigeland Sculpture Park, the world’s largest sculpture park made by a single artist. Gustav Vigeland was an important Norwegian sculptor and the designer of the Nobel Peace Prize medal. The sculpture park was his life’s work and has over 200 sculptures made from bronze, granite and wrought iron.
