Amusing yet thought provoking!!

Fantastic collection that made me smile and reflect at the same time. The sculptures can be quite controversial if you don't know the history, check out the hand in the lobby...lol

Don't get me wrong, the collection from Botero is great and you can see pretty interesting paintings and sculptures, but I liked more the many Picassos you can find in the "international exhibition rooms". The museum is 100% wheelchair friendly even tho' has a little step at the front door. It is pretty small, free and near the Center (La... More

This museum has a large collection of Botero paintings and an outstanding selection from the artist's own collection of other masters. It has curiously few of Botero's powerful paintings responding to the political troubles in Colombia but the pieces it does have are all interesting and worthwhile.

I have seen work by Botero most of my adult life, but never paid any attention to it. My wife an I visited the museum, and found a huge number of varying types of pictures and sculptures, and in different mediums. It is a large museum, and well worth the time to see the entire exhibit.

On our visit to Bogota we went for a couple of hours to this museum, having never heard of the artist. Was so impressed with the painting I ended up taking most of the gift shop home. If you haven't heard of him, this artist has a thing about 'chubby' whether that be people, fruit, animals etc. The art is... More

This creative artist Botero enjoyed plumpness and curvy. There is not a Twiggy in sight. Paintings and sculpture are everywhere. Do not overlook their singular Salvador Dali sculpture. Hint---after entering, look to your right.

What a great museum, we smiled and laughed our way through the many rooms filled with Bolero's unusual imagination. It was a highlight of our trip.
