A great collection of Botero artwork. Inexpensive, nicely laid out. Very clean facility. Easy access from El Poblado via the Metro. Highly recommended!

Such a wonderful place, has many kinds of artwork, you could find from Botero paintings, some of them really shocking as the death of Pablo Escobar, as also modern art really interesting. To go to the museum I consider important to know a little bit of the history of Colombia and Medellin. If you like to admire the artwork for... More

How can anybody not enjoy Botero's works. He has given many, many pieces to this museum. There are other works of art there, but there's total joy in seeing Sr. Botero's pieces.

Great collection of Botero art pieces and other mixed media. Not a huge museum, takes a little over an hour to stroll through.

I am now a fan of Botero. Very nice museum, more art than anything else, they should just call it an art museum unless I missed something. I'm glad I went and it's right in the plaza so easy in and out.

This museum is definitely worth visiting. Botero has donated much of his work to the city and as well as many of the other paintings in the museum by other artist. If you have kids, there are several interactive areas within the museum for kids to dress up and play. My son loved it. If you go during the week,... More

This was my favourite thing that I did in Medellin. The admission in 10000cop. It is fairly easy to find from Botero plaza. Inside is a 3 level gallery/ museum with a whole range of works including many by Botero. Make sure you don't miss any rooms- especially on the bottom floor.
