This is free and interesting. We tried to find the square at night. our GPS wasn't co operating either were our Google maps app on our phones. We ended up in a pretty scary neighborhood 3 blocks away. So my advise is to find this during the day. The square is small. This attraction is small to.

They have a couple of old fire trucks in display, one with about a hundred years and another even older. This was maybe the most interesting spot we saw in ponce. And I think it is worth to visit.

A small but good look at how it was done in the old days. It is free to look and walk around and upstairs has some of the original equipment that the firefighters used back then. The lions in the front are painted by hand by different artists, and they are absolutely beautiful. Short and quick on your own look... More

this is and old firehouse. that you can see in a couple of minutes. Is quite basic but not bad if you are already in downtown Ponce.

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.
