The sculptures are made from granite and bronze. Most of the sculptures represent human anatomy and poses. The construction of the park began in 1939 and finished in 1949. Gustav Vigeland died in 1943 and was not able to see the park when it was opened for the public. Today, over 1 million people visit the park every year. Most tourists like to take pictures of “Fountain” that has 20 statues that signify different age of human life. Tourists spend a few hours walking around the park. Sometimes, walking is difficult for elderly visitors. The park authority requests elder visitors to come with necessary objects that can help to walk in the park that includes walker, wheelchair, or cane. There is a coffee shop if someone wants to take a break.
