Guided tour: The Vigeland Museum and Vigeland's apartment 28.08.22
Welcome to guided tours in the Vigeland Museum this summer! Every Sunday in August we welcome you to guided tours in English at 13.00, where you can learn more about the museum and experience Gustav Vigeland’s apartment. The ticket also gives you admission to the museum.
ABOUT THE MUSEUM AND APARTMENT
The Vigeland Museum opened in 1947 and is Gustav Vigeland's (1869-1943) former studio and residence. In our permanent exhibition you can experience several of Vigeland's important early works from the 1890's, his famous monuments and portraits, and plaster originals of the iconic sculptures in the Vigeland Park in a 1:1 scale.
Vigeland moved into the apartment with his wife, Ingerid, on the second floor of the museum in 1924. He lived here until his death in 1943. Vigeland himself designed the interior of Ingerid and Gustav Vigeland’s apartment. The lamps, pillows, fabrics and tablecloths can be considered a "total work of art" inspired by the Art & Crafts movement.
There are only 15 tickets per guided tour. The tour is held in English.
