“Mildly interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

With the black and red stripes, the building's exterior is certainly striking. There are a few artifacts inside that show tools used in fire fighting in the past, but not really that interesting.

“It's ok.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

I have seen it before and to me there is not much to see, very different looking building. You can buy ticket for the bus tour in the office that's located there.

“Bombas Park”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Not really much to see. We saw it because we passed by. But really not much to see. You will see it because it is in the main plaza of Ponce.

“you have to see this to believe it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

drove to ponce on one of the days we were in Puerto rico...just by chance, they were having a street festival...as luck would have it, this old fire house was open for visitors....what an amazing structure....late 1800's....and the exterior is bright, bright red w/black.... numerous old pieces of firefighting equipment are housed in this building, along with a number of historical photos and documents relating to this station....located in the center of old ponce...my great uncle was a asst chief in the early 1900's in the boston, mass fire dept, so I am always thrilled to see something of this historical significance...

“Old fire station”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

A short and photo friendly visit shows the old fire truck (early 1900 ford) and equipment. Great foto op.
