A nice collection of both paintings and sculptures by Botero, as well as some other artists. The museum is situated in a cute villa that is fun to explore.

Botero’s private collection has some beautiful Picasso, Monet, Kandisky’s and other great early 20th century artists besides an ample show of this work. Botero’s donation to Bogotá was critical to make this museum an international level art gallery.

The Botero museum was a wonderful way to spend a few hours. His art is unique and wonderful. The style is almost inflated. The museum is well maintained and the entry is free.

This was part of Fernando Botero's personal collection that includes his own work and other famous artists like Picaso, it's not really a Museum in it's self its just a couple of rooms with exquisite art.

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.
