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.
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
