Small but amazing, charming, relaxed, understated museum that features a large collection of Botero paintings and sculptures along with a rotating collection (which featured works by Picasso, Monet, Matisse, Dali on my visit in Dec 2017). VERY well curated. I haven't enjoyed a museum this much in a long time. Tips: it's free. There are other museums very close by in the same complex worth checking out. Nice cafes, guest shops and central courtyard. You could probably see all the museum in 1hr., but it's also a wonderful place to soak in for hours. Gift shop on the 1st floor courtyard has a good selection (mostly Botero) or prints, t-shirts, postcards, mugs, etc.).
Perfect if you want to spend a small amount of your being in Bogota for very interesting and indeed very funny art investment. And investment means your attention, entrance is free. ;) It's chilly with a nice atmosphere and, if you are really interested in arts, coming up with surprises. In second floor you will find a selection of world famous artist like Monet, Renoir, Dali, Picasso and more. It's not too much, so definitely worth a visit!
If you love art you can't miss this place in your visit to Bogota!!! Absolutely a must for art lovers and enthusiasts. Because right there in the same complex of the Botero museum you also find the Museum of Art and the Museum of Coin. Amazing collections from very important artists like Picasso, Dali, Renoir, Botero, etc. On display for any and all to see. And the best part, the three museums are for free 365 days a year! A must see!
Wow! Botero donated hundreds of his paintings here and they are stunning. A mixture of sketches, paintings and sculptures. There are also a few Picasso's and matisse and Henry moore. Spent a great hour or two here! It's free as well! Definitely don't miss this!!!
Owned by the central bank, this place is just breathtaking, no, seriously, you have to go there! The place is awesome, go to photos right now and see that beautiful historic place and tell me I’m wrong, go ahead, experience it, and then go out to seek happiness in one of those cafes near the museums, talk to strangers (yeah Colombians are really nice people) and I know you’re gonna fall in love with Bogotá, you’re gonna leave part of your heart here. (Near there we have a Picasso too, if that matters to you) haha.
Great "surprise find"... walking in Candelaria. Very nice art collection featuring sculptures and paintings from Colombian Master Fernando Botero. The museum is inside a beautiful Colonial Mansion (worth visiting on its own) Entry is FREE And they have very knowledgeable Guides... also for free... Loved finding this place
An excellent museum in a beautiful colonial building. The collection is big enough to be informative and small enough to be manageable in one visit. Other artists are on show throughout, with Botero accounting for 3 or 4 rooms, including bronze (?) casts of his work.
Excellent museum. Just the right size with lots of works. Seeing so many Botero works displayed & in his home city was an awesome experience. I have been a huge fan of his and it was really nice to spend a few hours here. It was clean and well kept!
Totally cool and a part of a larger museum network that discusses the national currency. This museum was designed by the artist himself so it retains a kind of Botero-esq feel. All paintings are from his personal collection. Also free to enter and closes at 7pm most days except Sunday.
A must-see in Bogota! Free to enter and extremely easy to navigate. The Botero is filled with gorgeous pieces and sculptures. Note - it was extremely crowded, although I visited on a holiday. Highly reccommend seeing.
Many more things than just Botero art. To be honest, Botero is cute but it gets old pretty quickly when you have such a massive collection of everything you can imagine, just in fat versions. But there is plenty more to explore, so it's definitely worth a visit, and it's free!
Very nice free museum located near the city center. A lot of the most famous Botero paintings and sculptures are on display. Not a very large museum, can be done in about 30-45 minutes. We also walked through the modern art.musuem which was attached and that was also very nice.
Excellent collection also including impressionist, Modern Art, and sculpture. There are many Colombian artists here that you would never see anywhere else, and their art is amazing. The collection is well-organized, well-lit, and I highly recommend it
Luv luv luv. Must go and see the craziest, strangest, most interesting but also the most facinating art of Botero. As an artist, he certainly has a very different way of looking at the world and expressing it in a very comical but facinating way. I bought the cutest purse one of his naked woman paintings printed on it from the museum shop. Then i found some of his arts printed on canvas ended up buying 7 of those too. They r so much fun, i cant stop staring at them. I wish i could spare $5-6 million and buy one of his originals. It is a must see museum and admission is free.
Awesome museum to visit. The art work is a pleasure to see. I find a lot of them funny. There are also paintings by other artists. Free.
Delightful collection, completely free, and a good variety of paintings and sculptures by important artists in addition to the amazing collection of Botero's work. Also check out the Bank museum next door... But this museum was my favorite part of my trip to Bogotá. Only negative: the cafe did not take credit cards.
Fascinating look at the artist. Even though he is still alive, he let's museum keep all proceeds! Check it out, and walk around the area!
