  • Divine!!!! The works are unrealistic, the building itself is beautiful, spacious, it is not very long the tour, so it is perfect to invite the little ones of the house to know some art without them exhausting.

  • Great museum to wander around in! Love that it connects with another one through the courtyards. If you like Botero, do not miss! If you like funny/different art, do not miss! Also awesome because it’s free.
