Museum of Constitutions, Former Colegio Máximo de San Pedro y San Pablo

Building constructed in the 16th century by the Jesuits.

The construction was intended to house a college dedicated to the education of young people, and it became one of the most advanced centers of learning.

The Temple of San Pedro and San Pablo was inaugurated in 1603. 

After two centuries dedicated to education, it later served as a barracks, library, warehouse, asylum, and stable for a regiment. 

This austere and beautiful colonial architecture was the venue for the First Constituent Congress of Mexico in 1822, and in 1996, it became the Museum of Light.

In 2010, as part of the Bicentennial of the Independence of Mexico, it was transformed into the Museum of Constitutions, and the Museum of Light was relocated to another building in the Historic Center.

In its nine exhibition rooms, the history of Mexico over the past two centuries is explored through the constitutions, starting with the criollo independence movement of 1808. The themes are as follows: Constitution of 1814, Constitutive and Reform Act, Reform Laws, Constitution of 1824, Ayutla Plan, Empire and Restored Republic, Constitution of 1836 and 1843, Constitution of 1857, and Constitution of 1917.

Inside the building, you will find the first modern mural called "El Árbol de la Ciencia" (The Tree of Science), created by Roberto Montenegro.
