“Great part of Ponce history!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

Can't miss this when you're on the plaza. Very interesting, colorful and free! The old fire equipment is popular with all ages and the staff is eager to share their knowledge.

“Its just an old Firehouse...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

It definitely is very colorful and has some history to it, but it is definitely something you only do while passing by it. Cool, but not a "must see"!
