Last year I visited the Transport Museum in Gurugram with my family. It was an enormous museum, a phenomenal place and an absolute delight to see. It is a great place for learning about the transport culture of India from the beginning. It showed how in the olden days we had wooden wheels and now we have countless rockets, double decker planes and fascinating cars.
It was a beautifully designed and well-organized museum. At the entrance, there was a map which showed the layout of the museum. It spread over 4 floors, was spaciously built with lifts and easy ramps to walk. One section that was my favorite was the wheel section. There were more than hundred different types of wheels. They all were placed very carefully according to the years they were invented in.
There were not many people in the museum, it was quite `peaceful. Next, we came to a section with a large double decker van. Inside there were very fragile objects and lots of artifacts.
We spent a couple of hours exploring the museum. The museum was really a big inspiration for all of us. It showed the evolution of transportation from horse-carts and carriages, to fancy cars and big vehicles like airplanes
