This is a great museum and funny in the same time. Botero made everything looking fat, included the cats. It is FREE all the time.

I did not see wheelchairs as they have in New York. Only the first floor would be possible but there are a few steps up from the street. This museum is in a 250 year old home, so it's not like the Museo de Oro, modern and... More

2 hours works. But if you really love to see deeply all the works. You could spend as much as 3-4 hours.
