  • Stunning works of Botero. It is a museum which houses great works of this singular artist with his own style. It has a beautiful garden. It is also a very good place to visit as it connects with the Museum of the currency and is very close to other places of cultural interest in Bogota.

  • Lovely exhibition of Botero pintings. Free entry. Beautiful building.
  • This whole complex is a must do in Bogotá. From the numismatic dream of old minting machines to exquisite art from all over Latin America, including a piece from my favorite, Ecuador's Guayasamín, this is an art lover's dream. Housed in an old colonial structure, the sprawling museum is sure to delight--and with regards to Botero's pieces, confuse.z
  • The internationally known museum has exquisite bones. The courtyards are perfectly laid out and serene. It houses a large collection of Mr. Botero paintings. The canvases are known for their puffery of people - the images are grossly larger than normal depictions. See my 360 degree picture. It's well worth a stop.
  • Actually this rating is going to Botero. Amazing museum!
  • Wonderful collection of modern art including several European masters and a comprehensive Botero collection
