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.
