A must see in Bogota! It's Botero's personal collection plus many of his work. It is free because he wanted to give it back to Colombia.

Amazing experience, great collection of Botero paintings. Cannot believe it is free to the public considering the quality and size of the place. Absolutely a must for any visitor!

If you love art, it's a great little gallery displaying Botero, an artist from Colombia. They also have paintings from Picasso and Monet. It was great stop on our walk through Bogota.

Botero has a very distinctive style. Once you see his work, you will never forget....I guess you could say it is a similar experience to Dali. The museum is well laid out in a wonderful structural with a beautiful courtyard. I would rate this very high on the list of things to do in Bogota

Unmissable. In an affordable sized house, it dedicates half of the space to Botero's impressive paintings and half to an umbeatable collection of original Picassos, Dalis and world-class masterpieces. And... entrance is free! Be sure to dedicate a full day to enjoy every piece of art.

a delightful shift from the skinniness that we see in pictures today, rejoicing in the roundness, fun and abundance of nature, a peaceful and easy place to relax

After seeing the museum Botero in Medellin I couldn't help but wonder what else there could be left to see? To my surprise, this museum offered some different works of Botero as well as a gorgeous setting. Also- unlike the museum in Medellin, this museum is FREE! There is an excellent coffee shop located on premises. My favorite piece of... More

The Botero museum is part of a collection of museums. It has many Botero's works but also a nice selection of other work of the 20th century. It is in an older building with an interior courtyard that is charming
