  • It adjoins the Botero Museum. He has many works and takes good time going around it. It allows you to see the evolution of the srte over time

  • The best of this space, is that they are 3 museums in 1, connected by doors and corridors, all within a same block, so you can see different types of collections. In particular, art, is fantastic.

  • 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.
  • Great Collection of international artists. All the big names and of course the extraordenary Fernandando Botero. Free Entry! Use the inexpensive Audio-Guide. Its worth it. Very nice building.
  • Outstanding gallery. One of the best I have been anywhere. Free entry. Botero's later work is phenomenal. My favourite pieces were his pastels, but his watercolours are also great. Also includes work by Picasso, Dali, Renoir, Degas, Monet and others. Free entry!
  • The place itself is pretty, however there are no description about Botero's life or career. It may give the impression that the paintings were thrown out there just because. One can see the whole museum in about 20 to 30 mins
  • Amazing place with a heavy collection of Botero paintings and sculptures. Also there's some Picaso, Monet and Renoir inside. 100% free of charge! You can't miss it if you're in Bogota and dig art. Also recommend using Uber to get here, as taxi drivers can be dodgy.
