The museum itself was really nice- I loved the architecture of the building. it was in an area with lots of other free museums so you could just wander in and out The courtyards are beautiful. I'm not the biggest fan of Botero but it was nice to see the other works in the collection.

This was one of the most beautiful museum I have been to. The art work and the sculpture are exquisite. Love Botero. Take a look at the pics.

Ah this was just a fantastic museum. I have to confess that I had no clue who Botero was before entering Colombia, but this museum does a wonderful job weaving his development as an artist and sculptor into a bigger picture of his influencers and those he's influenced. The museum itself is also quite well designed. A very worthwhile stop!

This is a beautifully appointed museum of interest to anyone into modern art. The artist's generous donation to the country of his birth is greatly appreciated by all Colombians. Easy access, easy parking across the street and it's free.

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

This museum is definitely a must, (that is, if art is your thing) a very comprehensive collection from botero himself as well as amazing pieces of very famous artists from all over the globe. Besides, IT'S FREE
