  • Another free museum in Bogotá. Well-designed and comprehensive but pretty much only Botero with little else.  more »
  • The museum is installed in a beautifully restored Colonial house. The exhibition of works is incredible, in variety, in quality and the way they are exhibited. Botero is perhaps the best exponent of Colombian art today, and his paintings, but above all his sculptures are beautiful. We enjoyed this exhibition to the fullest. DON'T miss it.

  • Great museum to wander around in! Love that it connects with another one through the courtyards. If you like Botero, do not miss! If you like funny/different art, do not miss! Also awesome because it’s free.
  • Really interesting, free museum. Restaurant looks very good. Paintings and sculptured are well displayed. Building is beautiful. Lots to see. Great atmosphere
  • Beautiful place, they have an incredible collection and the facilities are fascinating I like how they used the buildings of the place with a bit of modernism. You can visit several museums on the same day and I think there will be hours left on the clock to be able to visit them all. Admission to the museum is free
  • Such a nice place with a lot of art. But I recommend you to go with a guide they will Explain every picture and it is fully interesting
  • Great museum with unique paintings. Other famous artists have early paintings here as well which was neat to see. AND it's free!
