Excellent Museum. Well maintained. Everybody should visit it. Admission is free. One of the best attractions in Ponce.

I suspect you can learn everything there is to know about Ponce at the Museum of the History of Ponce. Unfortunately, all of the information is in Spanish, although there is an English brochure that gives you an overview and you don't need an interpreter to enjoy many of the historic photographs. The building itself is also very interesting and it is worth visiting just to see that.

Displays were primarily in Spanish, but there were a few English bits and there were quite a few rooms to walk through. Free admission, open everyday (I believe). Most Ponce museums are closed on Tuesday, but this one isn't. Interesting, and worth a visit, but small children may get bored easily.

Make sure if you visit one museum in Ponce it is this one! We learned more about the city and its history during our visit than we had in anything we had read the previous week. Best part? It's in an historic mansion and you can imagine the family living here when you stop and look around. Excellent displays. I only wish more information was available in English as some of the more technical Spanish words I just don't know. Staff are helpful and eager to assist and point out things you may miss, so do avail yourself of their services.

TA said this was open at 9 am. Got there at 9:45. Sign for hours of operation said 10 am to 4:30 pm. Waited until 10:30 and no one showed up to open the place. Looked nice from the outside, but we wanted to see the inside.
