|A part of the 19th century park is still
remained near the museum. According to the plan of subjects, it had to become a complex
part of Clock and Watch Museum. The courtyard with working sundials was adjusted for the
events of Museum and city. Architect Vaidotas Guogis and designer Romualdas Martinkus had
prepared the architectural design of exhibition. In the centre of the yard according to
the design, made by Romualdas Martinkus, vertical sundial showing the time of Klaipėda
latitude was established in 1989. It is an original construction, made from rustle steel
in the centre of a round fountain. The signs of stars are on the fountain sides. In 1991
the composition 'The Sun Path Trough Constellation', according to the designs of the
artist of monumentality Lolita Sadauskaitė and designer Romualdas Martinkus was made.
This composition is made in stylised technique of Florentic mosaic. In 1997, one more
decorative monumental composition 'Time and Klaipeda' was made on the wall of the yard.
This idea had been matured since the beginning of the Museum. The authors were artists
Juozas Vosylius, Angelina Banytė and Romualdas Martinkus. This work of art occupies 62
square meters of wall. In the centre of it stands gnomon, made from rustle steel. The
section lines and scale of hours extend from it. There are different time symbols, used in
Lithuanian folk art around it. The accent of this composition is the figures of two
angels, white and black, symbolising the fight of goodness and evil, the change of light
and dark, the time. The authentic sights of old Klaipėda, which sinking in water, or may
be in time, that has neither beginning nor end, come to live again.
On the pavement of courtyard, you can see a horizontal sundial 'Measure the time by your own shadow'. This project was realised in 1999. L. Sadauskaitė and R. Martinkus created and accomplished that project. It is like a conception for children. Standing in the specially arranged ground, a visitor is able to measure the time of the sun by his own shadow. There are also, beeing planed the project of spherical sundial.
The sundials Park is adapted for different events. The belfry is located in the tower of old Post Office building, which is next to the museum. The concerts take place every Saturday and Sunday. Other evens take place there too. Different concerts of chorus, wind instruments music are organized by manucipality of Klaipėda, musical centre and the museum personnel.
