Adorable little museum

Cute little musuem and former fire station. They have lion sculptures out for you to view that are painted in different patterns.

We were there at night, so it wasn't open, but we were able to see the lion statues inside! Lovely at dusk!

To be such an important historical building from the city I find the surrounding in need of care. Althea the fire building is well cared for the plaza needs to improve the cleanliness of the area

This is a visitors center, it's free, it displays history of firefighting in the city. It's a quick stop, in a central location.

"It is one of Puerto Rico's most notable buildings, with some considering it "by far the most easily recognized landmark in the Island."

This is a historical firehouse in Ponce. Not much to do here. Just go up a flight of stairs and see how the firemen uniform evolved and paintings from Old Fire Chiefs.

This is the original fire house for Ponce.and is now a visitors site. The building is a colorful red with black accents and the entire building is great for photo ops.

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.
