Very cool, neatly arranged museum. Botero is a master and his personal collection, specially the international one is very rich including picassos, renoirs and Miros. The audioguide is a must. Botero's sculptures are just amazing!

Great pieces by a master. Lovely surroundings. Even better that the price is free. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it, but if you are touring the old area of Bogota (La Candelaria) it's pretty simple to just stop by and take a quick look

The museum is a really nice place, you have a lot of fantastic Botero paintings and statuary but also a lot of other artists as Ernst, Picasso, Miro.... and it is for free!

I really enjoyed Botero's delightful paintings containing bloated characters in this very charming museum of his work. It's also a rare opportunity to be able to buy postcards which is no easy task in Bogota, as is finding a place to post it ! However, there is a 472 post office a few blocks away. You might have to queue... More

Not Fat, not oversized ... Just Volume! His secret is the proportions and how he uses daily typical folks to create an almost story book character parade. You may not like them all, but I guarantee that one will stand out and make you chuckle aloud! So go ahead and enjoy ! Located at the base of the Candelaria barrio,... More

I did not realize that Botero donated his entire art collection to this Bogota museum. It was a pleasure to see so many impressionist and modern pieces that I had not seen before. I am not a Botero fan, but seeing his work as a group was interesting and entertaining.

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

We made this our starting point of our exploration of La Candeleria, but it's probably better as a midway rest point. The halls are cool and there's benches in the corridors for our tired feet. The collection itself is engaging and entertaining. What a wonderful free treat.
