I didn't include any pictures of the artwork because it doesn't do the real thing justice. It's not just a Botero museum. There are also pieces gifted to Botero, sculptures, sketches and paintings by Botero. There's a gorgeous outdoor area. It's also connected to the...More

We had just been to the Museo de Antioquia in Medellin and saw the fantastic Botero exhibit there. So this was a let down. However, if you don't go to Medellin, it's well worth a stop as very few museums in the world have Botero...More

A truly memorable and perhaps slightly unexpected experience! While much of the space is devoted to paintings and sculptures by Fernando Botero, with their trademark figures and exaggerated proportions, there are plenty of other works to feast your eyes on. Highlights include some fine impressionists...More

A professional guide, who carried his document as a professional guide and knows a lot about the museums, we found him in the gold museum starting a graffiti tour and undoubtedly we started tour

Loved the pictures, they are very amusing as well as skilful - not much in the way of English to provide background but still a worthwhile visit

We were impressed with the Museo Botero -- with Botero's work and especially with the art that he'd collected. There are several other museum at the same site -- and the courtyards of the buildings were beautiful. All in all, a great way to spend...More

Now I am doubly in love and terrified with so much art that is in Colombia, Botero is a great artist thanks to the orange umbrella for the tour

Though it was crowded on the weekend, we enjoyed perusing this museum's collection. It has a good breadth of Botero's work, as well as other more contemporary artists. Definitely worth going to while you are in the historical center.

I did not see wheelchairs as they have in New York. Only the first floor would be possible but there are a few steps up from the street. This museum is in a 250 year old home, so it's not like the Museo de Oro, modern and... More

2 hours works. But if you really love to see deeply all the works. You could spend as much as 3-4 hours.
