The Heritage Transport Museum Is Every Car Enthusiast's Dream Come True

Aditi posted on 17 July

Shortcut

Vintage and classic cars, railway, aviation, and two-wheeler displays dating back to when it all started, coupled with details of evolution of the automotive industry, Heritage Transport Museum is every automotive buff’s paradise.

Museum Enthusiast?

Love museums, but haven’t found a museum that you love? Don’t give up just yet. Thoughtfully conceptualised, perfectly curated and faultlessly lit {a crucial detail of the trifecta!}, The Heritage Transport Museum is a gem in Gurgaon that sets all of it right. Located on NH-8 towards Manesar, Heritage Transport Museum shows a certain line of history while shedding light on the more conceptual notions of civilisation and movement. It starts a dialogue about how mobility worked as a driving force {ha!} on society and culture.

What's On Display?

75 vintage and classic cars staged on a brilliantly orchestrated retro Indian street reflect the evolution of the Indian car industry. If you’re a railway, aviation or two-wheeler buff, you’ll find all that you fancy. The Collectible Indian Toys on Transport is not just a beautiful commentary on our childhood fascination with motors and anything that moved, but will also make you miss your long-lost and much loved tin train or wooden rocking horse which, by all means, would have found a home in this classy shelter.

New additions to the permanent collections include single spectacles like a charming goat cart; the temporary collection is joined by a 1934 Humber, on loan to the museum for 6 months by a private collector {we suspect it’s the Crawley family!}. Recently, an antique tram straight from Kolkata has been acquired by the Heritage Transport Museum as well – if you’re from the city of joy, a trip to the museum will definitely stir up some fond memories.

Get The Engines Warmed Up

And head here! The ongoing exhibition, titled ‘Imagining The Past, Envisioning the Future’ focuses on themes of how far we’ve come and where we’re going. Rather simple you may think, but it explores deeper motivations of individuals and civilizations that push creations of movement which run on longer than we do. We’re so impressed! It’s a bit of a drive, but hey, what could be better to make us appreciate the evolution of transport.
