The Basics

Gustav Vigeland offered to donate his works to the city of Oslo in exchange for an atelier. Located on the third floor, his former apartment can be visited by appointment only. Visit the museum at your own pace with the Oslo City Pass, which allows free admissions to must-visit attractions such as Kon-Tiki Museum and Akershus Fortress, and discounts at Tusenfryd Theme Park and Oslo Winter Park. Extra benefits include free public transportation in select zones, discounted meals, and more. If you are arriving in Oslo by cruise ship, half-day tours stop at top attractions such as the Viking Ship Museum and the Royal Palace and Park.

Wildcard

Vigeland In the Park The Vigeland Museum lies just south of Frogner Park. But equally impressive is the section of the park dedicated to and designed by Vigeland himself. Known as the Vigeland Installation, this sculpture park contains a permanent collection of his larger artworks made of bronze, iron, and granite, including the Angry Boy, the Monolith, and the Wheel of Life.
