This is arguably the number one must see in Medellin. Fernando Botero, Colombia's greatest painter, donated his collection to the museum and there it joins the most extensive ad perfectly curated and exhibited collection of Colombian art. Do not miss Pedro Nel Gomez's frescoes. The building itself is one of the most beautiful spaces you will see in the city.... More

The modernist architecture style of the building is amazing and beautifully preserved. This the true attraction not so much the Botero collection that is interesting which I don't appreciate so much. We took a free guided tour that helped to get a better understanding. The remaking collections aren't so much interesting. The surrounding area of the museum is quite poor... More

Antioquia is one of Columbia's states and the cities with in this state are, Medellin, Santa Fe, & Guatape. I'm sure there are many more that I haven't mentioned, but these are the places that I've visited with in this state in Columbia

This is a beautiful building in the downtown of Medellin with an excellent collection of Francisco Botero's art. His work is fantastic and the highlight of my visit. There are other collections, some of Botero's contributions of others' art as well. I skimmed through most besides the Botero. There is a gift shop that is so so and a cafe... More

This museum made my visit to Medellín totally worth it. Te top floor is almost completely dedicated to Botero and it shows magnificent works of his. Tip: the personnel send you first to the top floor to see the Botero's. I recommend to do it bottom up and save the best for last!

We were underwhelmed as we are not big Botero fans, but the museum is quiet, air conditioned, lovely on a warm day. The children's room is full of fun activities and very creative. The contemporary installations left us unenchanted. The restaurant attached is excellent, and so if the gift store. Nice little coffee spot out front while you are waiting... More

Great collection of Botero's works which he has donated...Also, other Latin American modern artists and very interesting displays. Definitely worth the short trip on the metro from El Poblado...

The international collection included superb pieces: Tamayo; Stella; Tapias; Rauschenberg, etc. The Bottero collection - I want to take some of them home. His best paintings are here. And the Botero sculptures outside are to die for.

We came here specifically to see the Botero exhibition and it really didn't disappoint. It was excellent. Not usually an art fan but the pieces were so interesting in a nice setting. Would recommend this little detour.
