Though small, this museum offers a comprehensive overview of the history and day of the massacre that took place right in front of this historic colonial building on March 21, 1937. A must for those who care to learn about Puerto Rico's fight for independence and Ponce's role in the history of Puerto Rico's cultural and intellectual growth.
