The museum is very cool! It covers the entire history of Ponce, which is a lot because it was founded in 1692. The staff is very friendly. The museum is only in Spanish, but enjoyable for the non-Spanish speaker. It would be nice if there...More

A few rooms. One has topographical maps of the area, some stuff about an aqueduct, and another has a photo of the aftermath of an earthquake. Very obscure stuff and not enlightening about the history of Ponce. Free.

This museum comes with a guide to help you understand the history inside this museum. It isn't a big museum but you will learn a lot.

The museum is small and free. It focuses on local history that would be of little interest to most people, other than maybe to see how people lived 100 years ago. It is definitively worth visiting if you are in Ponce, if only to see...More

I'm not sure if the people tending the museum will know about him, but there are many displays with items of/about local businesses, so you might find some more information there. I suggest you contact the museum directly.
