The first transport Museum of India
Gurgaon: The Heritage Transport Museum at Gurgaon, the first private museum of its scale in India, showcases the evolution of transportation in the country
The Museum website rightly says that the museum is a benchmark in interpretation, exhibition and in communication.
It was conceived to document, exhibit, educate and disseminate information about transportation and got started with the formation of the Heritage Transportation Trust, registered under the Indian Trust Act (1882) as a non-profit organisation.
The setting up of the Museum has been undertaken with Financial Assistance from the Ministry of Culture, Government of India.
On visiting the Museum, Ashwani Lohani, Chairman and Managing Director (CMD) Air India wrote on social media : “My visit to the heritage transport museum at gurgaon has again reinforced my belief in the power and capability of a single human being. What Tarun Thakral has done is simply mindboggling by creating the first transport museum of the nation. The collection is simply unbelievable and I would like to visit again for a longer duration.
This museum needs to be widely publicized as easily the finest museum of its kind the nation has on offer.
I also hope that some day the tremendous contribution of tarun thakral would be adequately realized by the nation.”
