This museum is made up of 4 different museums. I really liked the money museum, the botero sculptures and at the time I visited there was a Henri-Cartier Bresson exhibition which I loved. The museum is free and open most days. I visited on a public holiday 10am-4:30pm.

This is a beautiful museum with works mostly by Fernando Botero. The museum is free and located in a beautiful building with a nice small courtyard. There are no maps for the exhibition, but the audio guide (at 10,000 pesos per guide) helped a lot to learn more about the pieces and artists. Can highly recommend this!

Botero is a Colombian icon. His work is unique. This museum is set in a colonial building, with an impressive collection. Of course, lots of Botero but also Picasso, Dali and others. And... It's free! Would have loved to see some information about the works and artists themselves.

This is actually quite a big museum and a nice blend of period Archbishops residence and modern gallery architecture. The collection of Boteros are bound to make you smile and the headphone guide gives enough useful background such that you can enjoy them in more depth. In addition, there are lots of interesting/familiar Dali, Picasso, Braque, Miro and Monet pieces... More

My colleagues and I happened upon this museum while strolling the teeming streets of Bogota. The building is beautiful and the museum is not too large but leaves an impression. There is also a lovely cafe with terrace in a lush courtyard on the main floor which is nice to go to after visiting.

Took a quick walk through the museum on the way to the Plaza de Bolivar. Not really an art person so I couldn't grade how good the art pieces were. But if you are interested in art and are near the Plaza, not a bad place to spend 1-2 hours.

Botero's art is unusual but you can't look away. You'll want to take some home in the end! The museum is well laid out and there's a lot of interesting little extras. I'll go again next time I'm in Bogota!

One of the students in my class took me out into Bogota. This was one of the museums I had really wanted to see. It did not disappoint! The layout of the museum was just beautiful & I thoroughly enjoyed all of the exhibits.
