The American actor's relationship with the Jakober-Vu couple goes back a long way. In fact, not only is he the honorary patron of the foundation that supports this private museum, one of the exhibits is a photo of Michael and Catherine, who take an interest in the new acquisitions and projects on every summer visit.

In fact, the main building of the museum, built by the Egyptian architect Hassan Fathy to resemble the rustic mansion of S'Estaca de Douglas, is where much of the art collection is displayed. It was for years the home of the couple of collectors, until they decided to make it a museum.

Every year this museum attracts some 20,000 visitors and its rooms also exhibit works by great figures such as Rebeca Horn, Meret Oppenheim, Miquel Barceló, Domenico Gnoli, Frank Gehry, James Turrell and Louise Bourgeois.
