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.

We didn't know that it closes so early so we were taking our time around the plaza & have lunch. By the time we are ready to walk in, it was already 2.30pm and were told that it' closing in half an hour. For $10 per person, we didn't feel it's worth it so we turn back. We only wish... More

This is a wonderful museum. Of course, the Boteros are fabulous but we also discovered other artists we did not know and absolutely loved. Everything about this place is well done and don't miss the gift shop, either.

Worth a visit just to see the Botero exhibit with amazing examples of the work of Colombia's grand master. Enjoy examples of his early work, to the grander works, paintings and of course his bronzes. Couple your trip with a walk around the square for more of his work. Take in the museum shop, and attached restaurant. Worth the trip!

Two tips to make your experience in this great art museum even better. First, get the audio guide. It is not obvious that one is available, but you can rent one for a very reasonable cost at the same desk where you pay the admission. The guide is available in English and, for ordinary folks like me, really enhanced the... More

This is a good museum option for thise who visit medellin. Botteroo has donated most of shi work to the city and it can be appreciated on this museum. There is a good store and a cafe on the museum, so the visitors can have a glance on the amazing bottero square right in front

This was just brilliant! I went there for the daily free 2 pm tour (which normally requires a minimum of 5 people). Daniela (a bilingual guide) was more than happy to show me round on my own - was so enthusiastic and informative. It made for a truly memorable visit - loved the Botero room. I stayed on afterwards for... More

Nice botero exhibition. Unfortunately I got no audio guide even so the signs where on the information plagues. Could be more in English.
