The Museo de Antioquia is a fantastic museum chock full of Fernando Botero's wonderful paintings and a few sculptures. Also highlighted is his personal art collection of many of his fellow art contemporaries and friends. A fascinating insight into the man that embodies the Colombian spirit so well. Look outside in the plaza for the display of his incredible bronze... More

Adjacent to the Botero plaza you'll find the Antioquia Museum which is an Art museum. The top foloor is dedicated to the art of Botero - born in Medellin. It also contain several works of other artists bought for, and donated to the museum. Worth a vist. Admission (March 2017) 18,000 COP (US6).

The Museum de Antioguia is downtown, easily accessible using the metro, there is even a discount for seniors over 60! The museum has three floors with numerous galleries on each floor. Works by Botero take up a full floor, both his sculptures and his art. I was particularly impressed by the display of victims of la Violencia during the Civil... More

There's 4 floors of art of Colombian and other South & Central American artists: paintings of various styles and eras, sculptures, pottery, & photography. The top floor is dedicated to the work of painter / scuptor Botero. I liked the history and development of making pottery over the centuries. There is a restaurant and a coffee shop. It a nice...

A City that has been blessed with great friendly people and an great art. Botero's main collection finds its home in Botero's home. here in Medellin. The pieces are the ones heavily photographed and found internationally in publications.

We really enjoyed the Museo de Antioquia. Great collection, including the Boteros. We loved Medellin, but this museum is probably the only major actural tourist destination in the city. It's a must for any visitor.

I was at Parque Botero and saw the museum. I paid $18,000 and started on the 3rd floor with the incredible collection of Botero. I then wandered around and came across the most amazing exhibit. It's called Relicarios, and the artist is Erika Diettes. Its super powerful conceptual exhibit about the 250,000 people who have disappeared in Columbia in the... More

The city centre can be a bit daunting, however the locals are extremely friendly, and the museum is definitely worth a visit especially for fans of Fernando Botero. Do not book online, the price on the door is extremely cheap and great value for money.
