In 2010, the first unique Angels museum opened its doors in Anykščiai. The collection of angels was donated to the museum by the cultural figure Beatričė Kleizaitė-Vasaris. The collection contains 109 painted, wooden, ceramic, glass and other angels, which look forward to meeting the visitors of the museum. Here you will see the works of folk artists and the old sacred folk art, including Leonas Strioga and Vladas Vildžiūnas. This collection is constantly supplemented by new angels and plain-air works by various artists. Anykščiai Centre of Sacred Art keeps and exhibits the collection of art and library owned by Monsignor Albertas Talačka, the long-time parson of Anykščiai St Matthew's Church.
