A relatively new museum, the restored colonial house that is Museo Botero was established in 2000 when the world renowned artist Fernando Botero donated over 100 of his works, including 85 original pieces of art by European and North American artists. Fondly referred to as “the man who paints fat people”, most of the exhibits you’ll come across will be chubby art- children, hands, oranges and violins to name a few. The Museo Botero is the artists’ largest permanent exhibit in the world. Among the 85 pieces of art by other renowned painters are the works of Picasso, Matisse and Renoir. The premises, also has a lot of other smaller museums to browse through after the Museo Botero.

  • This place was the highlight of my trip to Bogota. It has tons of pieces from Batero, Dali and Picasso. On certain days the have free English tours and includes a money museum. I spent 4 hours marveling at all the beautiful art pieces. Must do when you’re in bogota. In addition, it’s free entrance. There’s a cafe if you want to take a break and people watch. Great place, informational and friendly staff!

  • The internationally known museum has exquisite bones. The courtyards are perfectly laid out and serene. It houses a large collection of Mr. Botero paintings. The canvases are known for their puffery of people - the images are grossly larger than normal depictions. See my 360 degree picture. It's well worth a stop. Always feel free to reach out to me on Twitter @joerazz
