Sightseeing and landmarks in Bogota

Art museums

Art Museum
“Fernando Botero is a well known artist famous for its "fat" figures. This is a must see. On the second floor there is a variety of art from other famous artists. Small museum would take maybe 1-2hrs. Nice cafe in the museum or nice places for a coffee or food nearby in Candelaria district.”
