Museo Botero - Review

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.

Museo Botero, Bogota Reviews

  • 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

  • This place is one of the very best un the city, not only because of the historical building. There is the most valuable art collection un the country and the temporal exhibitions are really interesting. Never dissapointing for art lovers

  • Expociciones expectaculares

  • Amazing collection by great renowned Colombian artists, especially Fernando Botero. And what's even more amazing is that it is free. A must-see when in Bogota.

  • A must visit if you are in La Candelaria neighborhood or downtown. A historical area of the city. This museum has the permanent Botero art collection, The Moneda (currency) Museum and its Art museum. Also, the "Parqueadero" where contemporary exhibits can be seen. You can have tours in English and may even part of a workshop. I highly recommend to see the paintings of "Las Monjas Coronadas" which is a one of a kind style of painting. In one word the stories behind this collection are jaw dropping.
