Supervisory Board and Management

The Teyler Family

The museum represents the efforts of generations of Teylers, a many-branched family with traditions reaching back over 200 years. It is based on the will of Pieter Teyler, in which he asked five friends to execute his wishes. The Teylers Foundation has been run by a five-member management team ever since. This foundation is the owner of Teylers Museum. Since 1981, the museum-related matters have been in the hands of a foundation, officially known as the Foundation for the Management and Conservation of Teylers Museum, with Marjan Scharloo as director.
