The Heritage Transport Museum in Pictures

We had embarked on a fascinating journey in our last post – Heritage Transport Museum that took us back in time.

Transport Museum

We were mesmerised by the evolution of transportation as depicted by the exhibits in the Heritage Transport Museum, Delhi.  As promised we are back with a photo blog about this amazing place and hope to recreate some of the magic that we had experienced.

Transport Museum

Come, let us step into the Heritage Transport Museum and be swept away on a fascinating journey.

This is what set everything in motion. The wheels of time have literally spun.

An early expression of Man’s urge to go places.

Traveling in style before the advent of mechanisation.

 

Back to school, some things never change!

Does anyone care for a bus ride into the past?

 

I am not old at all, I am a classic!

Whatever the time period may be, this definitely spells class.

Some stars from Bollywood movies.

This was the car that was once pulled by an elephant in the Rajesh Khanna Bollywood blockbuster movie of the 70’s, Haathi Mere Saathi.

This one must surely have created a stir wherever he rolled in.

A dash of elegant class.

If you ever thought what white magic was all about, here it is!

Dare to be different, the dash of blue against the sober brown sure shows off the devil may care attitude of the owner.

A closer look at this car will reveal that it has been inlaid with One rupee coins. Wonder what was going through the mind of the car owner!

 

Any takers for this Chevrolet at Rs.2,700? That is what this advertisement in Hindi proclaims!

 

Is this a plane, a ship, an amphibian or a UFO! soaring on the wings of imagination.

 

Origami gives wings to an artist’s flight of fantasy.

 

Toys from the past.

 

A ride on this scooter would really be fun!

Wonder where the kids who rode this toy car are now?

 

Life is a bike, keep moving or else you may fall off.

 

 

 

 

 

A blast from the past. A 1940s Piper J3C cub aircraft, suspended in mid-air.

 

The Airline wars! vying for customer attention.

 

 

Time to take home a slice of the memories of the captivating journey that has come to an end.

 

With loads of memories and the mind still filled with images of vintage cars, enchanting toys and brazen bikes the journey across time and place in the Heritage Transport Museum, Delhi, came to an end.

We hope you liked the pictures and they entice you to visit the transport museum, you are sure to take back a wonderful experience. Check Heritage Transport Museum timings and ticket info on their site here. To explore Delhi in detail, check out Delhi Darshan.

    Your stunning photos just bring back all the memories in the past. I never thought that there is this kind of museum, it very interesting and I like the idea of putting all old kind of transportation in one place. I’ll surely bear this museum in mind for a future reference. Thank you so much for sharing!

    The classic cars are the best – you’re right – not old but classic! I love the buses too, i suppose the design hasn’t changed that much because it worked so well in the first place – if it ain’t broke, don’t try to fix it! 🙂

    This museum looks like so much fun! I don’t drive, but I love the look of classic cars. I would especially like to see the cars that starred in Bollywood films. I just love quirky museums like this one.

    That’s amazing. I love going to museums especially since it’s a good learning experience for the kids. I’d love to take them here and just let them enjoy and learn about the different forms of transportation that we have and used to have.

    This is awesome. I’m not a huge fan of cars but I love learning about history. It’s a great way to learn more about cars and more here. And the kids will definitely enjoy it.

    I remember those pedal cars. I had an army type jeep before (a hand-me-down from a male cousin) and I loved it! This museum is a must see. I will have to remember to visit if and when I get to travel to Delhi.

  7. Catvills Reply

    Awesome! I always look at those period cars with amazement. It would have been so nice to own a car like that during that time! Oh and the pink convertible! Love it. What immediately came to my mind was Olivia Newton John and John Travolta in the movie “Grease.”

  8. Neha Saini Reply

    This is amazing. This museum looks like entering into era of vintage. Old cars, jeeps, palanquin and planes are the heritage of history. I love visiting such places. I have seen these in Umed Bhawan, Jodhpur also.

    Your post about the Heritage Transport Museum reminds me that we have something similar in Romania. In fact it’s not a museum but an old railway that was rehabilitated and you can travel in an old train along it. It’s a real cool journey and authentic as well.

    It is fun to see how the mode of transport evolves over time! We have something similar here in Calgary, but I would love to visit this one in Delhi and learn about the history!

  11. Nisha Reply

    This is amazing. And you did the right thing to make this one a separate post. 🙂

    This museum looks like going into vintage era. Loved looking at old cars, and other modes of transport. I saw one in Spain and still remember the details.

    I love those vintage cars! The one in deep red with spoke wheel tires is a classic! I have never been to a transport museum. It must be so exciting to see cars/vehicles from different eras!

    I have been to a couple of transportation museums near my house. It is so cool to see all those cars and carriages and even trains. It is a testament to our heritage.

    Those images certainly transport us across a variety of ages.

    Of particular delight, are those classic vintage airline posters.

    They really do their best to convey glamour and the exotic!

    Wow, this museum combines two of my husband’s favorite things, vintage and automobiles. Really fascinating to see the evolution of transportation from the beginning of time and all the way to the present, with Bollywood and Indian pop culture references. Amazing! Looks like you can get lost in there for hours!

    What a cool place full of fantastic memorabilia! Sadly, I actually recognise some of those old school buses – although I’ve never been to India, I was raised in Fiji and there were a lot of similar vehicles on the roads there!! Also loved the toys – and like you, wonder what ever happened to the children who used to play with them! Great post – loved all the pics.
