brilliant rainy afternoon project to see PROA...great local and emerging artist works. The rest of the day you can watch tango in the street, walk the caminito and hang out in small local cafes...

Right outside the entrance to El Caminito de Boca rests PROA, a foundation that displays art expositions, has a good book store and a very interesting site to be. Action Urgente is a good exhibit for one to know current social affairs in South America. It was a very good surprise.

The is wonderful small architecturally beautiful museum in the Boca neighborhood. We saw a wonderful Joseph Beuys exhibition. The bookstore and cafe are beautifully designed. The neighborhood is very touristy and not worth the visit, but DO visit this museum. It took us about an hour by taxi to get there around 11 am, so I think an afternoon visit... More

In my mind, Proa is the highlight of any trip to La Boca and along with visits to MALBA, MAMBA and MACBA, a must for modern and contemporary art lovers. I also echo the sentiments of previous reviewers who have enjoyed the daily lunch specials in the airy restaurant. A very relaxing experience.

Saw the Ron Mueck exhibit here, and the exhibit was fabulous, as was PROA. Admission was $15 pesos, which I found reasonable. The cafe on the roof is excellent, offering a great view too.

The Proa has no permanent exhibit, only special exhibits. We were fortunate to see a fantastic Ron Mueck exhibit (I had never heard of Mueck before the Proa, but his work was amazing) that included a film documenting his artistic process.
