For an in-depth look at Gustav Vigeland's work, visit the Vigeland Museum, opposite the southern entrance to Frognerparken. It was built by the city in the 1920s as a home and workshop for the sculptor in exchange for the donation of a significant proportion of his life's work. It contains his early collection of statuary and monuments to public figures, as well as plaster moulds, woodblock prints and sketches.

When he died in 1943, his ashes were deposited in the tower and the museum was opened to the public four years later. Guided tours are available (in English), with prior notice, from Nkr800 per group. In addition to the works of Vigeland, the museum also has a changing schedule of modern art.
