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.
The Ministry of Culture, Government of India has accorded a grant of Six Crores to offset the cost of construction of the museum building. The remaining investment is the fruit of corporate and individual donations and sponsorships.
India may now boast of the anti-museum, a space for fun and learning, experiential and yet experimental.
