Heritage Transport Museum, New Delhi

As part of our Tata #TigorStyleBack media drive, we had short stopover at the Heritage Transport Museum, located on the outskirts of Delhi, in Manesar, Gurugram (no one is actively using this new name for Gurgaon)

As we entered the campus, we were greeted to above Christmas tree.. err a tree with all kind of signal lamps. They were switched off when we entered but little later they were turned on.

A few old train engines and tracks and track shift levers stationed outside the museum, we spend some time around them before going in.


The ticket counter is a nice Morris Mini converted into a table. Supplemented by a nicely coloured set of old tyres





Sofas with car and race car impressions

The Museum is spread across 3 floors. I began from the top most one. These ultra colourful vans and metadoors were main attraction in top floor, followed by some scooters


Shining bullet





A scooter with dozens of mirrors! Very creative. There was also a Contessa classic with one rupee coin pasted all around it.

Came down by a floor, was treated to the sight of various modes of transportation popular in olden days- some even now. Take a look

Below: Tempo Hanseat- Tempo hanseat is still in operation in many parts of North india- particularly Pathankot area. Check my earlier post on them here


Jugaads- vehicles made from spare parts of other vehicles like jeep, tractor, generator etc- read more about them in my earlier post here. Illegal vehicles put very popular in rural north India- UP, Punjab etc for their cost effectiveness.

Lots of vintage cars are on display



 Below car was used in the movie-Dil To Pagal Hai, customized by Dilip Chabria

Heritage Transport Museum also has an aircraft

The section showcasing old trucks and buses as well as various kinds of hand pulled carts were also interesting. An entire train compartment is also showcased inside the museum.
 A cafe is available in house for quick refreshments.
