I will preface this by saying that I LOVE the work of Columbian-born painter and sculptor, Fernando Botero. His tongue-in-cheek paintings of over-sized everything (including his version of the Mona Lisa) are entertaining, joyful and beautiful. The curation of his art pieces is clever and well done, and you can't help but smile at his cameo appearances in so many... More

Wow! I had no idea I was going to be that excited with the art of Fernando Botero. This museum has a great collection of his work and the pieces are quite impressive. Great talented artist. Museum is very organized, clean and a beautiful venue as well. Sure one of the best things to see in Bogota, and it's free.... More

Although most of Botero's works are scattered through the world the collection in this Museum is a good sample, additionally there are some rare finds from other artists and the building itself is worth visiting.

I am a Botero fan. Therefore, it only stands to reason that I would like going to this art museum. Botero had a rather 'large' view of life, especially the people. He is Colombia's gift, if not its greatest gift, to the world. This a a walk worth taking and remembering!! There is no cost, so that is always a... More

Excellent museum. First of all, it is free. Second, there is a big collection of Botero pieces (mostly paintings, but some sculptures too) and pieces of art that influenced Botero. There's absolutely no excuse to miss this free museum if you spend a couple of days in Bogota.

I have to admit I was not familiar with Botero's art. I am not sure if it is art or comedy but I really enjoyed it. Many of the male characters are self-portraits. In addition to his work, the museum houses Botero's personal collection of art which includes at least one Monet, Picasso, Matisse, Salvador Dali and many others. The... More

This is a good museum with an extensive colleciton of art, not only from Botero but from a bunch of other great modern artists, worth a visit, and best of all, it's free.

I love Botero's work, so for me it is a must go. I think even if you are not crazy about his work, its a must to visit this small museum. It is located in a beautiful colonial house and has many peaces not only Botero's painting an sculptures, but from other artists he donated from his own collection..
