Four of us booked a full guided tour takes about 2 hours, it is really an amazing mix, the house is amazing and full of things to look at, the portrait gallery was brought to life by our guide Julia, she added a whole new dimension to European aristocracy portraits. The sculpture park is lovely as is Socrates. If you're... More

We went on a dull day. It's sign-posted from Port d'Alcudia roundabout. There's a couple of kilometres of poor road that you drive to the end of through stone pillars. The children's portrait gallery is beautiful. Admission is free on Tuesdays. A voice guide is worth getting for 3 euro for more info on the pictures. Then there's a nice... More

The house is stunning and built in a North African style.inside is wonderfully cool and contains many modern art pieces both collected by and made by Yannick and Ben Jakober. There is a sculpture garden to enjoy and the main... More

A charming and eclectic house and garden created by and populated with the collections and work of a most interesting pair of artists. The guide was engaging and the animal sculptures entrancing.

My partner and I visited Fundacion Jakober having found it on Trip Adviser. We wanted to visit on a Friday meaning we had to prebook a guided tour which our hotel receptionist did. The cost was €15 each which we thought was fantastic value for money. I understand there aree specific days in the week where entrance is free. On... More

I confirm all that was written by the previous reviewer. As indicated on the website -http://fundacionjakober.org/index.php/en/museum-hours.html - from Wednesday to Saturday you have to phone ahead and book a guided tour which is well worth the modest charge. The exhibitions are quirky, reflecting the characters and sense of humour of the Jakober benefactors. It is therefore very useful to be... More

The Foundation is located near Alcudia (Majorca) in a remote place amidst the forest. So you will need a car to access it. Alternatively, you can do a bike tour or have a big hike there. To find it, you should follow the purple signs saying "Fundació" at the roundabouts coming from the highway heading to or from Alcudia. Every... More
