Description

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

The museum's 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 well-documented in the museum, which also shows changing contemporary art exhibitions.

Gustav Vigeland's apartment
The apartment, where Vigeland lived from 1924 until he died in 1943, is situated on the third floor of the museum. It has been restored, and appears as it did at Vigeland's time. Vigeland has designed most of the interior of the apartment, including candlesticks, lamps and textiles. Open for tours by appointment, contact the museum for information.
