Khaneh Mashrutiyat (The house of the constitutional revolution), located in Tabriz, is a museum dedicated to the constitutional revolution of Iran.

From Encyclopedia Iranica
The establishment of a constitutional regime in Persia was the chief objective of the Revolution of 1323-29/1905-11. Like any other major revolution, the Constitutional Revolution in Persia encompassed a broad spectrum of ideas and objectives, reflecting diverse intellectual trends, social backgrounds, and political demands.
