Description

The Vigeland Museum is a sculpture museum located in the studio and home of sculptor Gustav Vigeland (1869-1943). The beautiful building is regarded as one of the finest examples of neo-classical architecture in Norway.

The collection comprises Vigeland's early works, his portraits and monuments, as well as plaster models for the sculptures in Vigeland Park. The artist's working process is also well documented in the museum, which also shows changing contemporary art exhibitions.
