    Excellent examples, with a café on the terrace. Very pretty, and is located steps from path, and in the most caracterisico of the neighborhood of la Boca.

    It is a very new sample, is called manifest, with 13 television screens that appear, with the excellent performance of Cate Blanchet, short films about different manifestos, but in relation to art. Very good. At 17, there are guides that explain what the exhibition is about. There is a confectionary with a very nice view of the river.

    The sample that I visited is the MANIFESTO of Julian Rosefeldt. They are 13 screens videos presenting selected fragments of the artists most famous 20th century videos are presented by outstanding Australian artist Cate Blanchett in different roles. The collage is bright like the performance. The only thing open to criticism is that the screens are very close between Yes, and the sound is mixed with the neighbors, making difficult the audition. Anyway is a must. At the end, go up to the 2nd floor and enjoy in the lka view of the harbour terrace. Served lunch is very correct and reasonable prices.

    The PROA gallery continues to have an interesting calendar of exhibitions and in summer additionally offers a great respite from the heat of the day. The design of the space is pleasing and complemented with a fine bookstore. The café has reasonable coffee and a balcony from which you can enjoy the view of the port and transbordadors. Foodwise, the last three times have been disappointingly average, therefore the rating is for the gallery, not the café which I would rate only a 3

    Went for the Yves Klein exhibition, I had already been here one other time before. The art was very well displayed and there was a free guided tour starting just when I arrived. It has student and senior discounts. Everything was well explained and the bookshop was nice, with good views of the port.

    Art museum which usually displays modern art. It has a very nice view of El Riachuelo. Also, in the second floor there is a Bar & Restaurant with an open terrace, very nice on sunny days.

    I went there to enjoy the view on the rooftop. I didn't visit the museum. To go on the roof it's totally free so enjoy it.

    Interesting modern art museum in La Boca district. It's 35 pesos/person to enter and has history of Buenos Aires as well as modern exhibits from individuals and students in the area. After your cultural experience, I would highly recommend heading up to the rooftop for a nice beverage and a beautiful view!
