"BOGOTA: DONACION BOTERO MUSEUM / CASA DE LA MONEDA" Colombia Things to Do Tip by swesn

Colombia Things to Do: 240 reviews and 516 photos

Donacion Botero Museum is a recently-opened museum where there is a floor showcasing Colombia's famous artist Fernando Botero's sculptures and paintings of fat subjects.

Other artworks by Monet, Picasso, Miro, etc... are also displayed. It is a lovely museum, though not as large a collection as Museo de Antioquia in Medellin.

The courtyard is also very pretty to wander about.

Next door to this museum is Casa de la Moneda which displays a collection of old Colombian coins.

Both were strangely opened on a Monday when I was there, but do check out opening hours.
