Governing bodies


The Museum's management was renewed in January 2021 with the intention of consolidating the project through a new board of directors with a continuity and renewal character. It is made up of eight people: the director, the deputy director, the manager, the director of communications, two professionals in charge of artistic direction, the director of performing arts and music, and the director of programs.

A particularly special and valuable feature of this museum is the fact that the artistic direction is collegial, formed by two professionals with extensive experience who, from the origins of the collection, designed a strategic proposal for its development. In addition to their experience, there is the director of performing arts and music, and the director of public programs, teaching and research, both linked to the previous artistic directors of their respective fields, marking a continuity and renovating character.  

In this way, the artistic programming does not depend on the criteria of a single person but of its four members.

Each one of them has a certain specialization, but their opinion and vote on the whole has the same value, so that the museum offer is perfectly coordinated in all areas and the variety of the resulting offer is presented as an integral whole. 

The Direction Board meets weekly, every Tuesday of the month, except in July and August. A total of 44 meetings are held each year. 


The main function of the Board of Trustees is to support the Museum's Board of Directors by providing advice and assistance in fundraising. The advice extends to the following areas: exhibition program, educational and cultural activities program, acquisitions, relations with other museums and institutions, and search for sponsorships. 

Likewise, the members of the Board of Trustees work selflessly to ensure that the Museum fulfills its mission, in accordance with the principles and values that inspire the University of Navarra, encouraging teaching and research on art and promoting activities that bring the Museum closer to the general public.

Ehe functioning and composition of the Board of Trustees are governed by its own regulations. The Board of Trustees meets twice a year and currently is chaired by Prof. Ángel J. Gómez Montoro.
