Antanas Mončys House-Museum

History of the Museum

Sculptor A. Mončys’ works were brought to Palanga on 1 March 1993. Authorities of Palanga of that time were not prepared for their proper storage and exposition.
On 10 July, 1993 the sculptor died and a non-governmental organization - a foundation for A. Mončys’ creative heritage and its preservation – which was establish by private persons: sculptor’s relatives, friends, admirers of his art and famous public people, took upon itself to take care of the preservation of his works. 
Since the autumn of 1993 the foundation commenced re-constructive work which was supported by the Ministry of Culture, Open Society Fund (Lithuania) and individual people from abroad: Juozas Kojelis, Isolda Požėlaitė-Davis, AM, Anneliese Riewer, Pranas Lapė and others.
On July 10, 1999 a permanent exposition was opened in the museum.

Collection

Museum’s collection consists of sculptor Antanas Mončys (1921–1993) works, personal things, working instruments, photographs, furniture, documents and diary sheets, accumulated by A. Mončys’ foundation and received as a gift to Lithuania in 1989–1992.

Mončys in France: sculptures, drawings, pieces of graphic art, flutes, masks as well as sculptor’s instruments, clothes, documents, sheets from his diary, posters of exhibitions, photographs, illustrations.
