They have not only many Botero's paintings and sculptures, but also those of several famous international artist. The garden was also beautiful.

Modern open design with large number of sculpture and paintings by Botero as well as a number of French Impressionist and other 20th century works. Open architectural space suits the art and facilitates pensive appreciation.

Worth going to just to see the Botero paintings and sculptures. But add in some wonderful pieces from Botero's contemporaries such as Picasso, Chagall and Dali and this is a splendid collection.

If you are at all familiar with Botaro, you will love this museum. Besides his paintings, there a number of his sculptures and line drawings. Take your time and enjoy all of his works.

Unless you like to view blubber, this place is not for you. The sculptures are better than the paintings. You should exit out the back and look for Lechuga in the vault next door to make the visit worth it.

Fantastic pieces by Botero, mostly paintings and a few sculptures. Also some unique pieces by Spanish and French impressionist painters. Definitely worth the visit.

A lovely museum with an impressive collection of work by Fernando Botero (unknown to me until my visit), as well as works by a number of other accomplished modern artists. The museum is comprised of multiple buildings with lovely courtyards - a nice way to spend an afternoon.

With the largest Botero collection in Bogotá, plus works by Picasso, Monet, Dalí, Chagall and many others (a rarity in Colombia) donated to the museum by Botero himself. Its a 3-museum collective (featuring Colombian art) with nice calm spaces to rest and appreciate the art.

We went here to spend some time and learn about Botero. Who knew he was this talented! Wonderful garden and views of Montserrate, not to mention all the art. Well worth the visit.
