10,000 pesos each, or there's an option of a guided tour. I enjoyed Botero's paintings the most, but you're sure to recognize a number of the other artists on display.

I do love Botero's art and have seeing several of his traveling exhibits as well as The Botero Museum located in Bogotá, Colombia. I was delighted to visit the Museo de Antioquia where I concentrated on seeing the Botero Collection. We took a taxi from our hotel to the museum and spent time outside admiring Botero's giant sculptures before we... More

I spent an enjoyable afternoon wandering through this museum... It is not so big that you get lost, but big enough for you to dodge an afternoon downpour without losing interest. If you have never seen the works of Botero before, expect a unique take on how to use volume to express interest and sensuality of subjects...

The whole third floor is dedicated to Botero, who painted rather voluptuous individuals. The rest had smatterings of photographs, modern art, a Picasso and a number of interesting local art. The cost to enter was reasonable: 10 COP apiece (about $5 US). The gardens in the park just outside had sculptures of Botero. All in all, a nice place to... More

Botero is an amazing artist, but when you visit the museum you will love him as he is a great human too. He has contributed to his country in every sense of the word. I really recommend anyone who loves art to visit. It is not big and does not house a lot of art but definitely worth a visit.

The museum has a nice collection of local and international art, and had a couple of interesting temporary exhibits. The gift shop is better than most, and is a good place to find something local and/or interesting to take home.

It has a lot of Botero and other exhibitions as well, it is a medium sized museum that you should go with a lot of time to appreciate it. I Liked that it has an area for kids, and I learned a lot from the afrodescendent exhibition they had at the moment and got to appreciate various works. Also, on... More

I think you get a good feel for people of a city or region when you go to their museums. This museum is the source of pride for many paisas and for good reason. There is a lot of Botero's work of course but I was surprised to find some of the great names of modern art as well. Regarding... More
