  • A real surprise. We took a tour midweek, we did not attend an event, (the place is rented out for weddings, meetings, celebrations and the like). The house is fantastic and you get some history about sugar on PR. It was built in the 1930s and was never changed, but it was well maintained until Ponce bought it in about 1980. It's the best part of a museum and garden complex on a hill.
  • Nice way to "kill time", it's worth doing once. But I wouldn't pay to go a second time. It's a cheap day trip and nice view of the city of Ponce.
  • Beautiful place with a great staff. The tour this place provides really helps you see how life was for this family and the town the previous century. You can also hold private activities after 5pm and enjoy the the views and the beautiful gardens. We also went during Halloween last year and they hold a "Haunted Mansion" that's pretty fun. It's a must of you are visiting Ponce as a tourist.
  • The Don Q rum family home is a treat for those traveling in Ponce. The home has been converted into a museum with original furniture and settings. The history of the location and the surrounding area is explained as well as the evolution of the company. The price of admission is almost very low ($12 for adults for the gardens, the cross and the house tour) and also includes a rum tasting during the tours. The views of Ponce and the surrounding areas alone are worth the price of admission! Its well worth the journey!
  • Great museum and presentation. Staff very courteous and professional. Truly recommend to visit
