Vigeland Museum is a sculpture museum in western Oslo comprising the essential works of influential Norwegian artist Gustav Vigeland. Located next to a park of the same name that features the iconic and famous statues, the museum, which actually was Vigeland's home and studio until his death in 1943, now houses his best sculptures, drawings, sketches, monuments, portraits and plaster models.
Gustav Vigeland moved to this site after offering to donate his works to the City of Oslo in exchange for an atelier. Located on the third floor, his apartment can be visited by appointment. The museum's displays on the first two floors document his working process and memorabilia; it also regularly welcomes contemporary art exhibits. The building itself is often considered to be a splendid and rather rare example of neo-classical architecture in Norway.
Vigeland Museum is located on Nobels gate 32 in Oslo, Norway. It can be reached by public transit via tram line 12, as well as buses 112 and 20 (stop Frogner Pass). It can also be reached from central Oslo by car via E18 and Bygdøy allé. There is paid street parking and a paid parking lot by the museum. Entry costs NOK 60 per adult and NOK 30 per child over the age of 7.
