About The Vigeland Museum

The Vigeland Museum is the museum of sculptor Gustav which is a studio turned museum. His famous works include the neo-classical architecture, his portraits, monuments and some early works he did. One of the most intriguing works of Vigeland is the plaster models which best represents the frozen bodies stuck in a gigantic time lapse.

The most interesting thing about the museum is his apartment within the museum, which has been restored to the original Vigeland’s style. He was the genius behind the beautiful interiors let it be the tiles, candlesticks or lamps. His work is not only a depiction of past but  also of the contemporary. It has been documented for most of its origin. It also serves as a model for the comparison of other great artists.

The park next to the museum is considered to be the world’s biggest and largest sculpture park to be made by one artist. The park holds more than 200 sculptures which are made by bronze, granite and iron. To say that he did his apartment and not his part would be unfair. Vigeland was fully involved in the settings of the park, which was ready in between 1939 and 1949. The Vigeland museum is a masterpiece which makes a person wow at how a single artist can pull of such beauties with supreme delicacy. It is one place which will leave you jaw-dropped and awe inspired.
