First of all the museum is completely free. Secondly the type of paintings here are hysterical. They really emphasized Fernando Botero’s art work and the meaning behind every painting. I suggest probably doing it on a tour so they can explain the rich concepts of...More

I absolutely loved the Botero museum! The paintings were so beautiful, colorful and unique. The sculptures were also nice. The building and the courtyard was also beautiful. There was also other artwork from other artists. A must see!

Not only were the Botero pieces extensive and fabulous, but we got to see original Picasso, Calder, Dali and other masterpieces. The building itself and the gardens are lovely as well. Spend an hour or spend a day but don't miss this gem.

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