If you like Botero sculptures and painting, you will like this museum. Beyond the art, it has beautiful courtyard gardens and a nice restaurant. It's free.

Not being a lover of art galleries I was reluctant to visit the Botero Museum but was so glad I did. His painting were weird but wonderful, and quite amusing.

Paintings and Sculptures of Maestro Fernando Botero are displayed in an intimate setting that reflects a Colonial Era with touches of the 20th century which fits perfectly with the Style of Botero.

I was unfamiliar with Botero's artwork so I decided to take advantage of free admission and wander through. His artwork is distinctive and I enjoyed my visit. I'm not a museum type person but this one was nice and not overwhelming.

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.
