Wonderful museum and the perfect complement to Bogota's Botero collection. After wandering around the sculpture plaza, it is almost a must to drop into this museum and learn more about this unique Colombian artist. I liked that this presentation was not just of the art itself but also gave you some background and introspective into Botero and his style. The... More

beautiful building and all the art you will find inside will be very interesting. Botero is just a wonderful artist. this place is perfect to spend a morning or an afternoon definitely it takes more than 3 hrs to see everything.

This museum is almost next door to the Berrio Metro Station. There is a ton of activity around the museum with food, street vendors, locals and tourists everywhere. The museum is next to Botero Plaza. Walk through the plaza toward the museum entrance and admire the numerous bronze Botero statues along the way. If it is sunny wear a hat.... More

If you do not speak english it may be quite unconvincing since there is little of english explainings. There are also no Guided tour available which makes it a bit confusing to get through the museum

Four floors of amazing installations and artwork. From realism to modern art and of course Botero. Really worth the admission price which was 18k COP by the way.

Not that historical as expected but nice and some beautiful paintings. A part of the museum was only in spanish, but alot of it in english. Worth the 18.000 entry. Spend 2 hours here and that was suitable for me - not much of a art Guy...

Very nice museum with fine collection of Botero's paintings (and a few sculptures) and explanations (in both Spanish and English) of his artistic journey and the significance of his work. There's a small but very clever section for children to dress like Botero's son and other pretend activities which would be fun for families with children. I enjoyed this section... More

no matter if you are into art or just curious about this legacy of art given to our city by artist Fernando Botero and some other donors , the collection is excellent and gives you a prime view to the artist of this country.

Spent 2 hours and it was absolutely fascinating. Wished we had an extra day to go back one more time. Also, the other art work was very interesting. The artist Pedro Nel Gomez was especially interesting, so we visited his home.

i was extremely pleasantly surprised when i visited this museum. the botero art collection alone is worth the visit, but there are many other interesting educational and innovative exhibits as well. beautiful building as well. probably the best museum i can remember visiting in all my years traveling around latin america.
