The sculpture collection holds 19th–20th century sculptures – portrait busts, bass reliefs, plaquettes, monument projects and models. The most valuable part consists of works by 19th century Lithuanian sculptors Kazimierz Jelski, Alfred Römer, Elena Skirmantaitė-Skirmantienė and Mark Antokolsky. Among the 20th century artists, works by Rapolas Jakimavičius, Petras Rimša, Juozas Zikaras, Bronius Pundzius, Konstantinas Bogdanas, and Gediminas Karalius should be distinguished. From the historical viewpoint, sculptures of the Soviet period, recently supplemented by the creative heritage of sculptor Petras Vaivada, have considerable value. The collection also includes some Western European sculptures, and works of sacral art form a separate group.
