The council contributes to decisions on the charities that Madurodam supports, for example. All members of the council visit applicants and then deliver a report. They then contribute to choosing which charities are supported. The mayor and council are also present at official events in Madurodam and make a working visit to the Mayor of The Hague. Part of their year on the council is a study trip to Dachau. Amélie Mijs (15) of Gymnasium Sorghvliet is mayor of Madurodam for 2017-2018.
After it was founded, Princess Beatrix was mayor of Madurodam for 28 years. Following her coronation in 1980, she became a patron of Madurodam.
