About Us

The Cultural Heritage Agency (RCE) is part of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. We work under the direct responsibility of the minister and implement laws, regulations and heritage policy jointly made by the ministry and the RCE. We also generate and disseminate knowledge and provide practical advice on national monuments, landscape and environment, archaeology, and movable heritage.

Our future a past, our past a future

Susan Lammers, general director:

‘To give our future a past, and to give our past a future – that’s our mission. Together with our partners we ensure good care for our heritage. Our passionate and dedicated staff also ensure that we use the power of heritage to address key social challenges.’
