Enjoyed visiting the old firehouse museum. You can get in one old truck and take a picture. Good for kids and some decent info (In English!) and memorabilia on the 2nd level. We parked in the metered street parking surrounding the square. Get some "ice cream" from the little hidden shop across the street and a couple of doors down... More

Not much inside, a quick visit. It's free and the Tourist Information office is there. The fire truck on the first floor is nice.

The red and black structure was built for a turn of a century world expo and now houses the original equipment for the firehouse from that time period. It is kept in pristine condition and is the icon of the city. It is located in the main square. it is worth a visit

This is a beautiful old fire building that is dedicated to fire fighters and fire fighting equipment. It is a focal point in Old Ponce. Located behind the Church and in the heart of the town square, no trip to Ponce is complete with a photo stop to this beautiful building and great town square.

This is a historical building in Ponce. Very cute firehouse. Right behind is the church and the building is surrounded by shops and siting areas under the trees.

Only go if you are into old fire equipment items...but, do get a picture with the old fire truck....other than that, it's just a bunch of old hats, suits, and pictures of old fire dept staff.
