  • WOW! The Botero Museum was such a great place to visit while my stay in Bogota. I had a smile ear to ear as I walked through the museum and see one great art piece after another. It made me so happy to be there and see what great work the artist Botero has compiled. Make sure you stop by and appreciate his work. Some are really big and I was left astounded by his creativity and talent. I am a huge fan of Botero. Thank you! I am very fortunate to visit this museum.
  • Never heard of this artist before but now I won't forget him. Fun, unique works in beautifully designed museum. Enjoy the walkable area around the museum as well. Very photogenic.
