On June 18, 1982, at 6 pm, the Fishermen's Culture and Sports Palace was opened. On that day, townspeople and city guests flocked in crowds to see the city’s largest building dedicated to culture and sports. The palace has become a prestigious cultural object of the city.
Žvejų rūmai has one of the largest stages in Lithuania (with an orchestra pit). This gives the opportunity to perform here for large ensembles (symphony orchestras, ballet troupes, etc.), to perform performances with complex scenography. There are 1,050 seats in the Big Hall and 114 seats in the Theater Hall.
Until 1996, the Fishermen's Culture ans Sports Palace belonged to the Lithuanian fish industry production association "Jūra". After this crumbling, thanks to the efforts of Klaipėda City Municipality, in 1996 the palace moved to Klaipėda City. The palace became a closed joint-stock company, 100% of the shares of which belonged to Klaipėda Municipality.
After the collapse of various business plans and the Million’s losses to the Municipality, the palace building was leased to entrepreneurs for 10 years. Also, unable to maintain the building and pay the rent, the Municipality began looking for another administrator for the Palace.
Since 2003 January 1 The Fishermen's Palace was administered by the Municipal Budgetary Institution Klaipėda Music Center.
April 1, 2005 Klaipeda Music Center was reorganized once again. Two cultural institutions of Klaipėda city municipality appeared - Klaipėda Concert Hall and Žvejų rūmai, the Cultural Center of Klaipėda City Municipality.
Žvejų rūmai is headed by Director Alvydas Juozas Lenkauskas.
