Botero, An artist from Columbia, has a distinctive style, once you see it you always recognize it. It’s not what I would call beautiful but it is distinctive and has lots of hidden meanings in it. They have a good collection here and the price...More

This is a well laid out museum dedicated mostly to the art of one particular artist, Botero, whose work, for me, is pretty one-note, though not without skill and cleverness. However, the 3 or 4 rooms devoted to smaller works of late 19th & 20th...More

This was a real surprise. My favourite part of Bogotá. I loved the paintings and sculptures. Some surprising other works as well. It’s free as well and a lovely setting as well with neighbouring galleries. A must see.

This is a very nice museum with an impressive collection. It includes works from other countries, in addition to Colombia. If you have time, check it out.

Overall a very mellow and peaceful place perfect for a Sunday stroll through. Was great to see Botero's so up close in person. I highly recommend an afternoon here and right down the side streets through all the vendors. A must do if visiting Bogota!

This is a perfectly sized museum. It doesn't take hours upon hours to see the works. The size of the collection actually allows for spending a sufficient amount of time with works that are more interesting than others. The museum is really well done. I...More

You may just see fat people, but did you notice the play with proportion and volume? How about the snakes and apples and sin? Plenty of things to discover here - all for free.

I did not see wheelchairs as they have in New York. Only the first floor would be possible but there are a few steps up from the street. This museum is in a 250 year old home, so it's not like the Museo de Oro, modern and... More

2 hours works. But if you really love to see deeply all the works. You could spend as much as 3-4 hours.
