Briefly describe the history of the museum, its collection and donors.

Through 10 Galleries, the Heritage Transport Museum showcases the evolution of transportation in India. The Automobile Gallery showcases the evolution of the Indian car industry, as well as cars that have been used in India since the advent of motoring. On display are over 75 vintage and classic cars - parked alongside a recreated Indian street scene from yesteryears, sporting vintage ephemera. A vintage petrol pump with spare parts memorabilia has also been recreated, while a special section showcases the role of cars in Bollywood.

Films on transportation are screened in a mini auditorium on this floor. The Pre-Mechanised Transport Gallery shows a timeline of transportation in India, beginning with the story of the wheel, on display are palanquins, howdahs, bullock carts, horse carriages, and camel carts. Alongside these are displayed decorative objects, such as carriage lamps, carbide lamps, and palanquin finials. The Two-Wheelers Gallery showcases the evolution of early two wheelers in India including bicycles, scooters, motorcycles, and mopeds. Indigenous systems of transport such as phat-phat, chakhda, jugaad and ganesha are also on display. 
The museum excels in school programs and workshops, and has a very good library.
