This was the highlight of my experience in Bogota. Botero generously donated his own works of art, along with more in his collection including Picasso and Degas. His works include a self portrait, all of his paintings portray subjects grossly overweight.

This art gallery is free and features many of Botero's paintings and some sculptures. However the gallery also showcases other artists such as Picasso and Degas. Worth the trip.

This unique Colombian artist was a treat. Great museum with a good sampling of Botero's works, as well as some amazing pieces from his own private collection. Well worth the visit. Highly recommended.

A fantastic collection of an amazing artist who only depicted and sculpted fat people and animals. Stunning paintings in a lovely colonial building. A top attraction in Bogota for sure

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
