We enjoyed seeing Botero's works from his later period. Nice museum in an old building setting. Well maintained.

Someone who hates museums and art galleys will still enjoy the Botero Museum. Botero's artwork makes me laugh. It's funny! Well... maybe not all of his works, but the majority are satirical and very funny! My wife got a kick out of the gallery as well.

Look, I'm not what you would call a lover of fine art, but you don't have to be to appreciate Botero's work.

Artistically, there are far better reviews of the Botero Museum here than this one, but if you want to have a good time and get a good chuckle in a gallery, the Botero Museum is a MUST!

I really enjoyed the environment the feeling that you are in Botero's house and invited to visit his and his friend's art pieces.
Picasso, Dali, and many other artists are represented there.
it is a must see place in Bogota.

This attractive museum is located in the Candelaria area of Bogota and houses part of the private collection of the artist. Botero's art is a joy to see and the exhibit includes paintings and sculpture. Was surprised by the free admission.

Admission was free, and my wife and I really enjoyed getting to see some of Botero's artwork while we were in Colombia. I would definitely recommend stopping by if you're in the downtown area.
