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.

The Fundacion Proa is a beautifully designed modern building. In one building are a nice bookstore and cool restaurant. We ate at the restaurant -- acceptable food -- service was a bit slow. The design is MoMA-esque -- big glass window looking onto the harbor, wooden floors that seem to pick up the harbor theme. Unfortunately, the exhibition was closed... More

Located in a very special neighborhood of Buenos Aires (La Boca), host a number of exhibitions of different artistic topics. Across the street, you may also reach the Quinquela Martin museum, representative of early 20th century painting, depicting immigrants, hard-work in the port area, with amazing colors-
