Mel Gibson is donating sets from one of his movies to a museum in Mexico.

The governor of the Mexican Gulf coast state of Veracruz said the Hollywood star would donate sets from the movie he is currently filming - which is tentatively titled How I Spent My Summer Vacation - to a future museum.

He said several sets were built inside the Ignacio Allende prison in Veracruz and that the jail will be converted into a museum once Gibson has finished filming.

In January, 1,500 inmates were transferred out of the prison to make room for Gibson's film, which began production this week.

The actor and director filmed his 2006 Mayan-language movie Apocalypto in Veracruz, and the governor said he also donated some of the sets from that film.
