This is a world-class example of how to revitalize an aging downtown with a space that has extraordinary, world class art, in addition of course to Botero's own incredible works. Very highly recommended.

Before visiting Museo Botero, I must admit that I wasn't a huge fan; however, I quickly fell in love with the artist and his amazing works of art after just a few short minutes of visiting the museum. It's amazing what this man has done for Colombia: enhancing its culture, cultivating an appreciation of the arts and instilling so much... More

The art is housed in a wonderful building-a must see! Plus, there is other wonderful art delicately interspersed.

This is a very complite museum, it is absolutly worthed to visit. It has exibitions for everyone, specially for the con temporary and moderno art. You will spend at least two hours per each zone. Half of the museum is the colección that the artista Fernando Botero donated of con temporary art. The other half has the Fernando Botero pieces.

The one in Bogota is hosted by the Banco de la Republica, no doubt the most prolific public sponsor of art in Colombia. The Botero Donation includes... More

Of course, I had heard of Botero and seen his work but I had no idea as to the extent of his work. Not only are there MANY wonderful paintings but lots of sculptures that I was less familiar with. And it is in a very beautiful old building. I think it was free. Also it is right next to... More

I find Botero's work whimsical. At some point, you can only see so many pudgy people with a similar look before it becomes a bit "the same". Nonetheless, the Botero Museum holds more than Botero art. In fact, it has an amazing selection of Botero's personal collection that is a clear bonus for visiting this museum. Chagall, Picasso, Cali, Monet,... More

I had no idea how prolific an artist Botero was - but really appreciated the museum and his work. The works are laid out thoughtfully. Very accessible museum.

Our friend "forced" us to go to this museum on an afternoon where we were already tired from tourist activities. What a lovely surprise! We were very thankful that we took her advice. Funny, quirky and a very surprising selection of masters. Don't pass it up.
