This museum is connected to Botero's museum. So if you visit Botero, you can easily access to this one also. This place displays different types of artworks and also you can see earlier artworks of Botero too.

This museum is attached to the Botero museum. So if you visit the Botero museum (and you probably will), allow some extra time to visit this one - at least an extra hour. I think this one is free also and you will see wonderful artists that you probably will not have the opportunity to see much of outside of... More

We spent hours here as there are 3 different museums. IF you are an art lover the collections here will not disappoint. Picasso, Dali, Botero and many others, the collection is quite impressive.

This museum plus the Moneda Museum and Botero Museum are located at the same location. I spent about 2 hours here admiring the various art exhibits and some history about them. There are 5 floors of exhibits, separated by various time frames. Photo-taking is allowed, provided flash is not used. I also enjoyed it beautiful spiral wood staircase.

A good, free art museum with quality art from mostly Colombian artists. If you don't like modern art, then you probably will not enjoy this museum. In my opinion the Botero museum next door is much better. It is generally pretty empty, but it may be safest to go in the morning hours to avoid crowds.
