  • Perfectly curated, by Botero himself. The venue is just right and admission is a free. A jewel of a museum.

  • This museum is a must see when visiting Bogota. Located in the historic area of La Candelaria. It was great to see so many pieces of Botero’s work up close. Other great works (Picasso, Monet, Matisse, Degas...) are present as well. The interior garden courtyard with its fountain is very peaceful and is a nice backdrop for photos.
  • Soooo good. Seeing a few special Botero, Calder, and Dali pieces in person is worth the trip. His paintings and sculptures up close, especially in this location, are so amazing.
  • This is an amazing museum to see arts from Botero, Picasso, Edgar Degas, Monet, Renoir, Dali, Max Ernst and several other famous artists. I went on Sunday and entrance was free. It is a small museum and it can be visited within 1-2 hours.
  • It is very well organised, and pretty big museum, but I didn’t like the style of Botero’s work, personally. It is a place worth visiting because you have more than just his works in offer. It is really modern.
  • This is a wonderful museum of Botero's artwork and art from other influential artists from his time. The majority of the "other art" was from his private collection. While I not a fan of Botero's work this museum is quite a nice place to visit for a hour or two and better yet it's free.
