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.

I was told about this place by a friend and I wanted see it because my husband is a military fireman. If you get in the general area you will not miss it.

Its a museum where you could find a lots of history of firefighters that fight fire that almost destroy the entire city. Its remember all those valiant and tenacius men that save lives You could also see the equipment they use to extinguish fire at those times
