I'm not a museum guy, but I thought this museum was worth going to just for the gimmicky nature of it
Excellent collection - great space. Wish they had more English, but you'll still be thrilled here I especially loved the sculpture collection, which you rarely get to see in this type of setting and quantity
It obviously helps to enjoy this relatively small museum if you like the work of Botero. I am not his biggest fan, but I still found it very worthwhile because it also contains the work he collected. I also discovered that while I find his paintings somewhat repetitive, I quite enjoy his sculpture. Also, the museum is in an enjoyable... More
Absolutely great entertainment for free. The collection is pretty nice and is _not_ just Botero. Plenty of good impressionist works for those who are fans. The building itself is really nice, and has an open courtyard between the different galleries in case you want to relax in the sun. The giftshop, while small, was excellent for getting some nicer souvenirs.
I am a new convert to Boteros work. I love his paintings drawings and sculptures all of which I saw for the first time at this museum. There are paintings also by Picasso, Chagall, Bacon. An amazing place, I enjoyed it so much I went twice.
This small charming museum was the highlight of my Bogota experience. Botero's private collection included works by: Renoir, Picasso, Soutine, Max Beckmann, Max Ernst, Jacques Lipchitz, and many other esteemed masters. The paintings were displayed in various rooms around a central courtyard. It was a very satisfying visit.
The museum hosts an incredible collection of Boteros work. This is a must see. Be sure to go on the guided tours.
My friend who I was traveling with got a little bored, but I loved this. Botero is one of the most famous artists to come out of Colombia and this little museum is wonderful. You should google some photos of botero work before you go so you understand the style of art before you go.
The building alone is alredy worth the visit - so charming! It is great that the entrance to the museum is free, which is surprising because you will also see important works of art of other artists that are out of Botero's private colection.
