Oslo Norway Photo Gustav Vigeland sculpture park. Oslo's largest public park. He had some special deal with the city in which he got room and board for, like, forever... so he had to make so many sculpures for the city of Oslo (with the help of some art grad-students, I guess...?) Great place to walk. Oslo Norway Photo

I think both of these tourist sites are worth a visit if you go to Oslo on a vacation / holiday.

These pictures are of the Norwegian folk museum in nearby Bygdow. The raised floors with high windows helped keep animals out. A mixture of paganism and Christianity around 1200 helped create the Stave church below. It's hard to tell the last picture is some kind of a mill, but it shows how "open" the open-air museum was. Not far from this museum is a good viking ship museum (no pix).
