Heritage Transport Museum, Haryana
Been there recently?
One of the rarest kinds of museums is one that documents, displays, informs, and educates the visitors on the evolution of transportation and systems related to it. Built on a large plot, the museum has a display area of 90,000 square feet spread over 3 floors displaying the antique vehicles used for transportation, including the railways and aviation (models only). Opened in 2013, this private museum has blossomed over the years and attracts many tourists. Stroll through the antique cars, railway coaches, planes, and automobile parts that are neatly arranged with every detail provided. People with a love for antique transportation vehicles would love the place, and for others, it would be a great educational tour. The painstaking effort and time invested in the collection of these beauties, and especially the spare parts, are to be appreciated. Kudos to the people who conceived, planned, implemented, and executed such a unique concept. The building housing the museum has eye-catching designs, and the journey starts right there. The museum can be visited all round the year. It is located at Tauru approximately 22 kilometres away from Nuh, the district headquarters and approximately 60 kilometres from New Delhi. Gurugram, about 35 kilometres away, is the nearest railway station. New Delhi is the nearest airport.
