Built in the "BOCA" neighborhood with the aim to uplift its value from popular to intellectual, this is an excellent modern art museum with a first-class artistic activity.

We were there in December 2014 to check out Cai Guo-Qiang’s exhibit on Argentina, which was fantastic. Besides, fundación Proa, with its quite, air-conditioned rooms and nice café was certainly an oasis in this picturesque but sometimes overwhelming and shabby neighborhood (La Boca), especially in a hot summer day.

The building is beautiful, the exhibition's space is really nice, and actually the exhibition we saw (cai guo-qiang) was quite impressive. The library's collection on the upper floor was very interesting and we had lunch at the top floor with a nice view on La Boca. We were nicely surprised by the food (I had seafood with rice). Overall, great... More

This is an excellent exhibition center wisely designed and modern. The restaurant upstairs has a colourful view from its balcony: the old bridge of La Boca, and its surroundings can be seen, and it is the very La Boca that makes it, at the same time, diffulct to get at fr.the security point of view. Do not carry your purse... More

It´s a mark in Buenos Aires. You must been there. You can have a lunch or drink a coffee while touring the different pieces of art. You can buy a souvenir at store before leaving.

Proa has only 4 rooms (3 on the ground floor and 1 behind the first floor store, plus a little exhibition area along the second floor restaurant). There are only traveling exhibits -- no permanent collection. It was all done very well. I'm not a fan of modern art, but did enjoy this gallery. The restaurant was good. Bonus: the... More

Excelent space right on the port in the barrio of La Boca.Easy to get to from the city center on the bus.I have seen a few exhibits here - Ron Mueck was the most recent and very well attended and presented. Make it part of your visit to La Boca, where you can easily spend several hours.

Attended the exhibition of hyperrealistic sculptures of Australian artist Ron Mueck sponsored by the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain. Check its website,http://proa.org/eng/information.php as exhibits are updated frequently. If you appreciate culture and modern architecture, you cannot miss this amazing site surrounded by La Boca.
