Curiosity, the passion to collect homogenous objects, the search for the rare, unique and often elusive is what impassions all collectors. This is where it all started for the Heritage Transportation Trust. Registered under the Indian Trust Act (1882) as a non-profit organisation it was conceived to document, exhibit, educate and disseminate information about transportation. In collaboration with five other trustees, we have brought together a passion for collecting all forms of objects related to transportation in India. After over two decades of research about the evolution of the modes of transportation that formed the plinth of the collection in possession of the Trust, the Heritage Transport Museum was initiated as India’s first comprehensive transport museum.

The museum showcases the evolution of transportation in India and sets a benchmark in interpretation, exhibition and in communication. As the first private museum of its scale in India, it is conceived as a didactive space that engages visitor participation in learning while remaining a family experience.

The Heritage Transport Museum is situated on a three acre plot, off National Highway 8 at Tauru-Gurgaon. A built up area of over 90,000 square feet of air conditioned space spread over four floors houses the exhibition galleries, library and reference centre, conference rooms, mini auditorium, the museum shop, and a restaurant facility.

India may now boast of the anti-museum, a space for fun and learning, experiential and yet experimental.

As a center for collection, research, preservation, education and display of Indian Transport History, the Heritage Transport Museum showcases the evolution of transportation in India.

Heritage Transport Museum has been built on a 3.01 acre land in which a 95,000 sq ft area encompasses Exhibition Galleries, Library & Reference center, Mini Auditorium, Souvenir Shop, Seminar Rooms & Refreshment Center. The Museum sets the standard for Indian museum with its dramatic displays, in-depth interpretation, extensive collection and exciting opportunities for visitor participation.
