Botero is 'really big' in Colombia and this gallery provides all the Botero you could ask for. The art works are fun, it's a small but well put together gallery in a beautiful old building. The best part - it's free! You only need a...More

Everything you could ever want to see about Botero. They have other artists, but its very minimal. Well worth a stroll through, especially considering its free.

A beautiful colonial building right in the Candelaria District. The museum is friendly, manageable, and the collection is simply unforgetable. Besides, admission is free. Don´t miss it.

The Botero Museum is also a must-see attraction in Bogota. And it's free. Both, the Botero paintings and the Botero collection of international art should not be missed. It includes Picasso, Miró, Renoir, Monet and many others.

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.
