We were delighted by Botero's work that we saw in Medellin and went to this museum. His art is very inspiring and the other paintings in the museum were nice as well. The souvenirs-shop however is very expensive so we did not buy anything even if there is plenty of good stuff.

Wonderful art. A must-see. Botero is in a class by himself. A very modern museum in a great part of the city (El Candalario).

This is a must see museum if you visit Bogotá, there is no entrance fee and there are also some exhibits from other artists like Picasso, Monet, Klimt and Degas. Don't forget to buy some souvenirs in the Botero shop.

I'm not a big fan of Botero (pun intended). But his palazzo is filled with works from many major artists that he collected over the years. The lay out is easy to access, and the building itself is quite pretty. A lovely spot for an hour or so.

The generosity of Fernando Botero, one of the greatest and the best know Colombian artist has no limits. He has donated not only his own works (painting and sculptures) to the city of Medellón and Bogotá, but also his private collection of art, which includes masterpieces from the most important contemporary artists. The Botero Museum in Bogotá is housed in... More

This great museum is free. Botero gave it to the city of Bogota with the condition to be free. It has many of his beautiful paintings and sculptures. You can also find paintings of Picasso, Janet etc. A great Museum to visit.
