I can honestly say this is one of India's best museums. Well planned, well curated and well maintained interesting collection. I have visited it several times during our four year stay in Delhi.

We visited the Heritage Transport Museum last sunday and I must say it was worth it.

+ World Class Infrastructure and Display Layout
+ Neat and tidy premises, maintained very well.
+ Entry fee of 300/ very reasonably priced.
+ Attention to detail in the exhibits is commendable.eg:Even the washrooms have truck ORVMs for mirrors!
+ Acres of open space in the adjoining area to enjoy a wonderful winter afternoon picnic.

Highly recommended to visit!

The Heritage Transport Museum Taoru Gurugram has recently acquired two steam engines, an American and a German one. The German engine has been restored by a team of retired engineers from Southern Railways. They have done a great job and the engine runs. It is being showcased on the 13th of May.

The Indian Postal Department has also issued Postage stamps on transportation featuring a lot of exhibits from the Museum. These stamps were released at the Museum itself. There were six topical sheets, and a combined sheet seen below.

There were also topical sets, Stamps on Palanquins, Stamps on Carriages and Carts, Stamps on Rickshaws, Stamps on Vintage Cars,
Stamps on Public Transportation, all sheets seen below.

I guess I'm late to this thread. I'm quite surprised that such a museum exists in India! Its must have taken the owner a considerable time, effort and money to start and maintain this museum. The only other similar place I've seen is the camera museum at Chennai. Good Job!
