Having never heard of Mr Botero before this was an excellent introduction to his style and humour. This is an old colonial house filled with examples of his work pus works by Renoir, Monet And Dali. Excellent

This was my favourite gallery in Colombia. You can't help but smile at Botero's paintings and sculptures...all very well curated. The gallery also holds his personal art collection which is fantastic, Rodin sculptures, Francis Bacon, Picasso, Freud, Chagall, Dali, Monet.....lots more which I've forgotten. The museum is in a lovely building around a pretty courtyard so just a nice place... More

Amazing collection with some of the best pieces of Botero art. Even the building is delightful. Is not the Museo Botero in Medellin where you can find the most representative pieces.

- Mix of artists (Picasso, Modernists..etc)-- not just Botero - Good place to get a sense of Botero, his style and evolution - Go with somebody that you can analyze with! :)

We stopped in here as a part of the free city walking tour, and loved it so much that we went back later to finish exploring. A charming collection of both Botero's own work and pieces he's collected over his lifetime. Very well kept, with a beautiful courtyard, and free! Only comment I might make is that it was poorly...

Really interesting museum. Broad collection including Picasso, Monet, Renoir. There is an audio guide which can be rented in English and Spanish for about 10 000 $. However go outside to the souvernir shop to aquire it.

Of course you would expect Botero art and sculptures but this museum also includs very exceptional art from Boteros' personal collection that he has donated.
