  • Probably the best experience we had while visiting Ponce in 2 days! We were greatly welcomed in this museum. All the expositions were written in Spanish but the guide who was bilingual offer us a tour, just for the 2 of us, explaining everything of the rich history of Ponce ! He answered every question we had and give us a good overview of the colonial and current history of Puerto Rico. Do not miss that, it's free.
  • Went today with my family and I love everything but the attention the we received by the conversational guide guys was awesome! They took al the time needed to explain us everything and were very friendly. Good job
  • My girlfriend and I got practically a private tour of the museum from one of the curators. The vast majority of the exhibits, everything is in Spanish with no translation, which we didn't know coming in. The curator was bilingual and gave us an awesome tour though so we had a great visit! Easily the nicest museum we visited in Ponce, gave us a good grasp on the history of Ponce and Puerto Rico in general
  • Amazing experience. Ronald was very knowledgeable and taught me everything to know about Ponce. Museum has a lot of nice exhibits too. Don’t forget to go outside for even more !
  • Really nice and informative museum. Enjoyed what I could understand or translate on my phone. Would be better with more descriptions translated to English.
