“A little dissapointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

Enjoyed his earlier work, was surprised to see the collection he acquired from European artist. I admired the collection of other artist a little more. The building is very colonial and beautiful. The area is Great! A lot to see within a short walk one museum to the next. Several street vendors, selling a lot of beautiful crafts. Jewelry, was beautifully done. Woodwork excellent and inexpensive.

“Architecture of Museum the Most Interesting Part”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

This museum is housed in several old palazzos. The architecture is marvelous. I am not a huge Botero fan but found the art worth seeing as well.

“Impressive Art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

Seeing this museum was awesome! Botero definitely has a great taste for painting, as it looks quite different from what you might be used to see. Give it a try!

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

Botero's weird, sad, oversized humans are one thing - but his personal art collection is a trip through the 20th century. What an eye, what a guy. Must not miss this if downtown.

“Don't miss it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

Maestro Botero's great collection on display for everyone to enjoy. Great paintings and sculptures.
I recommend early Saturday or Sunday visit to avoid Bogota's crazy traffic to get there
