This is not so much as a review of the museum as a warning to tourists visiting Bogota. In this case, I had made several trips on business, and wanted to see more of the city. I was alone and walking to the museum when I was stopped by a policeman on a motorcycle. He pointed to at least 6... More

The Museo Botero has an impressive collection of world class art pieces, from colombian history to contemporary works, and of course some of Botero´s most recognizable works. The museum is located in the centre of the city but its architecture combined with the colonial house where it is placed makes you forget about the noisy and crowded centre of Bogotá.... More

The Botero Museum is one of the places that will catch you in Bogota for its diverse collections and warm architecture. It is located in a house that until 1955 served as the main building of the Archbishop of Bogota, in the beautiful museum complex of the Bank of the Republic. The entrance is located in face of the Luis... More

This was the third time we went to this museum. Very famous museum and the art is different (fat everything). This time we went with a guide who loved and knew a lot about art (Marcello Bitti) and it was a whole different experience. This is a must see attraction (if you travel a lot in Europe you have seen... More

Visit this marvelous collection donated by master Botero to the people of Colombia, no entrance fee. They even give tours explaining the works of art, free of charge ( not sure if this is also done in English).

In this Museum not only you will find Fernando Botero's masterworks in various mediums from different periods of his life. You will be amazed by the exhibition of his private collection that includes works by Dali, Calder, Lam, Degas. It is impressive to see a small selection that could easily hang at museums like the Louvre in Paris or the... More
