Here’s an awesome way to spend a Saturday (or a Sunday, or any other day). Make a trip to the Heritage Transport Museum in Gurgaon. This place is pretty much a hidden treasure. If you are a car buff, you will love it. They have a decent collection of old cars (over 75 of them); a large number of non-motorized transports; a bunch of two-wheelers; a railway coach belonging to a Maharaja; an airplane; some boats; buses and vans; and all these put together very tastefully.
You don’t need to be a car buff to visit though. It is a great place to go to with children as well. Very educational, a lot of fun. I visited with our 4 year old and she had a ton of fun (and her favorite was the pink car of course). There is an auditorium which plays educational movies that children can enjoy during the visit.
They have something good going. We felt very welcome by all the staff there. I hope to see them expand and become bigger and better (for instance, the cafe is pretty basic and could use an upgrade).
Getting there is easy – though it is a bit on the farther side. It takes about 45-60 minutes depending on traffic and how you drive. I recommend that you take NH8 and not the route through Sohna to get there. Here it is on the map (also a map is embedded below). I recommend that a visit once should definitely be taken – though it is worth visiting again and again.
