(Mex.) El pasado viernes 19 de febrero de 2010 se dio a conocer en un comunicado de prensa la noticia del próximo cierre del Museo de la Luz, ubicado en el ex templo de San Pedro y San Pablo, en el centro histórico del Distrito Federal. La noticia fue declarada por René Drucker, director del museo y responsable de la Dirección General de Divulgación de la Ciencia en la UNAM.

Lo que se pretende es sustituir el recinto por un nuevo museo dedicado a la Constitución, argumento basado en que en este lugar fue promulgada la primera Carta Magna en 1824, lo que convierte de inmediato a este espacio en una construcción “constitucional”. Fundado en 1996, el Museo de la Luz se encuentra bajo la dirección de la UNAM, después de que el edificio fungiera como sede de la Hemeroteca Nacional y posteriormente permanecer en el olvido por veinte años. Su propuesta inicial fue crear un espacio que acercara a los ciudadanos a la ciencia y al fenómeno de la luz, pero además brindar estimulación a las personas con discapacidad visual (por cierto, a unas cuantas calles del museo se encuentra una escuela para gente con ceguera).

El recinto es visitado por más de 100 mil personas al año y es punto de encuentro para los amantes de la ciencia y la tecnología. A pesar de la repentina e inesperada decisión, Museo de la Luz ya tiene su calendario de actividades para el 2010, entre las que destacan las exposiciones SPECULUM: Obra Pictórica de Jorge Luna; Los Albores de la Astronomía Moderna en México y próximamente la muestra De Arte y Ciencia: un ejemplo, los vitrales, con la intención de presentar unos vitrales “olvidados” en el Castillo de Chapultepec durante varias décadas. Esperemos una solución al incesante reclamo de la sociedad que exige, cuando menos, la reubicación del museo que cuenta con más de 110 aparatos recreativos y así, evitar la pérdida de tan valiosa colección científico-cultural.
