I love seeing the cars and trucks that they used back in the day. The museum itself is free to enter and look around and they also offer a bus tour around all of Ponce for just $2.00. It was very nice.

Ponce is rich with history and beautiful walk ways. The fire house is loaded with historic artifacts. I hate large boring museums. It is small and perfect for pictures! At night the fire house is lite up and absolutely enchanting!

Passed it on our way to The History of Ponce Museum. It's ok. Lions were in front. A few people taking pictures. Unremarkable. A little dull actually.

This place is really small. Nothing to do here so please don't waste your time. It was only a quick 2 minute stop just to take a picture.

We thought we would spend the day in Ponce and it was raining. We figured we would take the trolley and see some indoor museums. Well we drove over an hour for nothing!! EVERYTHING closes in the rain, even the little shops and stores! We were extremely disappointed!!

Thats what locals say about Ponce. This town is so proud of their culture that Ponce is Ponce means that there is no other place better! Parque de Bombas is an emblem place of Ponce. Takes just 10 minutes to see and take a photo!

This is a small museum, with well maintained older Fire Trucks and equipment. Nice way to pass some time - the Staff there are very helpful and can answer most of your questions about the Fire House and Ponce.

Nice small place. Located right in the Plaza, Ponce city center. There is no fee for entrance. Worth spending a few minutes learning about Ponce's history.

Or so they say... This park is a true relic of its time and a gem as well. One of the main picture-perfect stamps where you will enjoy taking many photos
