Specialty Museum Museum
Visit Parque de Bombas, a museum of firefighting and a landmark of the city. Built in 1882, the building served as the first fire station in Puerto Rico, whose firefighters battled some major blazes in the early years. After 108 years of service, it was turned into a museum; today, you can view many relics, items, and artifacts from the station's history. Admire the Moorish Revival style and vibrant red color of the distinctive building, designed for the 1882 Exhibition Trade Fair.

  • Quick, historical and picturesque place to visit. The Plaza and Church are an added treat. Tour guide was very friendly and courteous. Enjoyable visit.
  • Very nice people. Nice place for history and family. Nice plaza too.
  • Very important place with historical value. A good stop to take photos and visit the urban areas of Ponce.
  • Historic Firehouse in historic city of Ponce.. They have in display some of their antiques carts but at the moment the majestic firetruck isn't there got now. Enjoy ice cream and beautiful downtown structures..
  • Small pretty fire station, free entrance and well worth a few minutes. Cool antique fire engine and lots of lions upstairs
