I went to this place 2 times already. I enjoy the square, with all the giant statues forged by Botero. They provide a unique atmosphere before you go inside. Go straight to Botero s exhibition- you will enjoy all. Just be aware of pickpockets in the square. And go by metro. It is easy and safe...

It has one of the major art collections in Colombia in terms of pieces and quality but is in the centre of the city and outside of the museum is dangerous to be

3 Floors of Colombian art that show the history through paintings/works. I like this place a lot, definitely a MUST SEE when you come to Medellin - I bring everyone I invite here to see Botero and other artists.

This museum was one of the main purposes in going to Medellin, and it came through. It's a sanctuary amidst the grime and chaos of Centro, and it's well worth devoting several hours, maybe even retracing your steps for full enjoyment. And it's worth a repeat trip.

Can't visit Medellin without getting some dose of Fernante Botero's art. The location, just in front of the park makes this a can't miss and must visit destination. For a small fee you'll get access to perhaps the most impressive collection of Botero art along some very impressive pieces and exhibits from other artists.

If you like Fernado Botero's work, this is a place you have to see. It's a magnificent place to see some of his best paintings plus some of his sculptures. This is a donation that Fernando Botero made to his hometown. Besides Botero's work, you will be able to see more work from some of the best Colombian artists.

I was keen to see the work of Fernando Botero while in Medellin and was not disappointed. Botero's work and that of many other artists is housed in a wonderfully spacious building and includes great examples his paintings and sculpture. I particularly enjoyed the exhibition of ceramics and other intriguing three dimensional pieces which provided light relief from some of... More

This museum mainly houses the art work of Botero with some more international pieces from the man's personal collection. Considerable thought has been put in to the space and curation. We spent around 4 hours there on our visit and definitely recommend it. Entry was 10,000 per person. The plaza outside houses a lot of his bronze works too, so... More
