Fernando Botero has been Medellin's figure to be proud of. And this museum has an important collection of his sculpting and painting works. It is located at the End of the Fernando Botero Plaza, an unlike the Palace of culture this building is very sober. It has four major halls and 1 of them is dedicated only to Fernando Botero,...

Great collection if Botero but not much else. Cute shop in the lobby with, you guessed it, lots of Botero memorabilia.

If you like Botero you have to go to the Museo de Antioquia to see the exhibition. A lot of different paintings and on the Placa de Botero you have all the statuary.

Spend an afternoon viewing Botero and other Latin American artists. Very impressive. After that stop at the gift shop for souvenirs.

If you are a traveler looking for local culture, then you will adore this museum. As the most famous local artist, visitor will find many of the most representative works of Fernando Botero. Additionally, other assorted art and temporary exhibitions will take your breath away. The place is located downtown Medellín; being careful is recommended (do not wear expensive jewelry).... More

If you visited the Botero museum in Bogotá then expect a similar environment. I visited since it was in my way to another place but wouldn't have gone out of my way to go. It was nice. Of course if you are a fan of Botero by all means do not miss it.

The museum building is enough to warrant a visit and the exhibits inside provide a comprehensive overview of Colombian art from the colonial to contemporary eras. There are many great pieces from Medellin-born Francisco Botero, many other notable Colombian artists and a small exhibit of works by international artists.

If you are into art then you'll love this place. There are many works from the world famous Fernando Botero along with other assorted art and temporary exhibitions. Knowing plenty of Spanish will likely enhance your experience. The Museo is in (what feels like) a sketchy area but I'd say that it is definitely safe enough to visit! Cheap at... More

I am not typically an avid museum goer but I loved this museum. You can see the whole place in an hour or so and the 3rd floor of Botero artwork is beautiful, impressive, comical at times, and well worth a visit.
