Beautiful building

The building itself is pretty and the history to the place is interesting. The museum is nothing much. But all-in-all worth the visit when in Ponce.

Picturesque, different! It's a landmark to the city of Ponce, and a short visit would be enough, 30-40 minutes. You can take nice pictures there!

Its an old recreation of a fire fighter station. Its full of color and history. I think is a distinctive piece of Ponce history.

This is a very small museum celebrating the firemen who worked out of this fire station back in the day. It's free to walk around and take pictures

Sitting in the plaza de Ponce and very colorful. Is one place to visit and take pictures. However, don't forget to visit the Chinos helados for some great coco icecream.

Former fire station now serving as a tourism info office. Men working when we were there were very helpful in providing information on the building as well as maps and directions. They are happy to help!
