Downtown - La Candelaria, Very close to the Libreria Nacional. The museum has a great collection of the famous Fernando Botero, totally recommended.

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.

The museum shows Botero's work but also his own private collection of work by other artists. We started our visit not really liking his work. As we saw more we really started to enjoy it. We were then staggered by the quality of his personal...More

I don't usually like museums, but this one was quite interesting. Best of all, it was free. It was nice to see the works of a local artist and learn more about him.

The grounds of the museum are gorgeous and the artwork is stunning. The location is convenient to several other museums. I was honestly shocked that a museum of this quality is free. Definitely recommend it!!!

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.
