If you’re a petrol head or even a little bit of a car enthusiast, you’d know that these days, all cars are becoming futuristic. With interesting design elements, funky interiors and, at times, cumbersome technologies, cars seem to be losing their touch with heritage. To return to a simpler time, when these vehicles were more than just a means of transport and rather something of a life style, head down to Heritage Transport Museum, where they’ve procured a not just cars, but cycles, motorbikes, trains and planes from the olden days.

The Heritage Transport Museum is a one of a kind place of exhibition that stands out in a sea of such repositories in the National Capital. The place is artistically done up and is rather quirky in its approach in displaying the vintage vehicles. Each of the walls tells a different story about the automotive history of the country and the vehicles themselves.

In fact, apart from the rare cars, you can also find some rare artifacts and advertisements of these cars from age old magazines and daily newspapers. Some walls are decorated with bicycles in a rather quirky manner, making for highly insta worthy pictures.

The main reason you’ll visit is obviously the cars. Here, there are vintage cars from World War I and II era, the colonial era and even some cars that have been owned by Rajahs and Maharajas. They even have some vintage planes and plane spare parts decorated here and there, so keep your eyes peeled for those. They even have some vintage trains and train tracks, which take you on a journey through the development of transportation in the country.

If you are planning to visit the museum, make sure that you’ve got enough time because, by no means is it small. There are four floors in all and each of them has something different to offer. The ground floor has all the cars from age old eras, while the first floor showcases a timeline of transportation in the country. The first floor is also home to a beautiful depiction of the classic Indian Railways platform.

The third floor of the Heritage Transport Museum is all about aviation and sea based modes of transports. Here, they’ve recreated a boat floating gloriously on the Ganges, which honestly looks very inviting. This floor also has a massive area with vintage transportation toys that enthralled kids back in the day. Adorned with arts and crafts, , the final floor of the museum perfectly brings your visit to a brilliant end.

The Heritage Transport Museum is located near Tarou Road, in Gurugram and you’ll have to pay 400 bucks to enter and 200 for a child.
