Who we are
In our house we share the best of Dutch painting from the time of Rembrandt and Vermeer.
The staff of the Mauritshuis consists of more about 70 people working in the Collections, Education, Development, Facilities Management, Finance and Marketing departments. The Mauritshuis is managed by two directors: currently Renée Jongejan is both Director (interim) and Director of Operations and Finance. The management answers to the Supervisory Board.
The Mauritshuis was a state museum until 1995, at which point it became independent. The organisation established to this end, the Foundation Royal Picture Gallery of Mauritshuis, is responsible for managing the building and the collection. The management and operations of the Prince William V Gallery are also under the aegis of the Mauritshuis. Please see the annual report for more information on the organisation.
