While at the Parque de Bombas the worker there told us about this place so we visited. Great museum of the history of the city of Ponce. Lots to see in display on a very old house that was restored years ago. It's just a block away from the Plaza where the old Fire Station is.

This is an old house in the cultural district of Ponce. It is a free attraction in a wonderfully restored house. Each room tells a story about Ponce its development and commerce. It is all in Spanish, but ask the desk for an English speaking guide.

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.
