“Visit when you are in La Boca”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

PROA is housed in a very nice building in a very strange location. Its exhibition spaces are fairly limited for a building of its size, especially considering the cafe and library (really a bookstore) each take up a great percentage of a floor (the layout can be found here). General admission is 12 Pesos ($3) and student/educator admission is 8 Pesos ($2). This includes a guided tour (in Spanish) if you make arrangements to visit the museum to catch it. The exhibition that we attended was “Pop, Realismos y Politica.” When we paid our admission we were given a guide to the exhibition and some of the works in English that we had to return when we were finished. It was well written and helped us to understand the curator’s vision. Overall, the show was more or less interesting. Add to it the chance to experience the building itself and it was well worth the price of admission.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

Not to be missed...apart from the appealing architecture the POP exhibition I viewed was insightful.
Do not miss visiting the other gallery nearby.

A drink~coffee on the balcony overlooking the area also enjoyable.

“Worth a visit !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

This litte and very nice exhibition building is located just steps away from the famous "Caminito" in La Boca (just take the Bus 64, e.g. from Paseo Colon), this will bring you right there. Inside you will find a Library with some very special books, and a cafe with a very nice terrace overlooking the harbour Area.

“Surprising gallery in La Boca”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012 via mobile

Worth the slightly intimidating walk from San Telmo. Lunch alone was a highlight, beautifully prepared and good value. In a cafe on the top floor you can watch the crowds along Caminito and retire to a sofa on the terrace for code and dessert. Very civilised afternoon. And the art is interesting too!
