Extensive Botero collection of all of his media - paintings, statues, etc. Free entrance is certainly a bonus.

This warren of buildings was an unexpected highlight for us in Bogota. The place oozes history and the museum is full of works that we were surprised to find in Bogota.

This entire collection is the best free treat in Bogota. 2-3 hours to review the entire collection is not enough.

This isn't just a museum of Bolero's work - it also houses his private collection of paintings, so there are works by many other artists also. The collection is housed near other museums, and is always free and not too crowded. It is definitely worth a visit.

Nice museum, free, housed in an incredible building. Botero has a unique twist to his rendition of the human body. The museum is a pleasure to stroll throughout and is not overly huge so seeing everything is easily accomplished.

This museum was great because it featured works not only by Botero, but by other famous painters from around the world. The museum was also incredibly beautiful in itself.

The museum is full of beautiful pieces. There is no entrance charge. There is a small garden area in the center for sitting. It is two stories of Botero's work and collection. Peaceful and relaxing.
