The philosophy of the Heritage Transport Museum is that of an object-based, visitor-centered, interdisciplinary museum. Key methods and media have been identified and deployed for communication with visitors at all levels in each gallery. Through these, the museum’s learning and engagement activities deliver innovative learning opportunities to a wide range of audiences and seek to provide interactive experiences that encourage multiple interpretations of the museum exhibits.
Situated on Level 2, visitors to the Discovery Centre gain knowledge about the principles and mechanisms of various modes of transportation by interacting with actual parts and models, for example an engine, a gearbox or a chassis. Exhibits have been designed to be operated primarily by visitors, with clear educational objectives, which will encourage visitors to understand real object and phenomena through hands-on physical exploration.
Library & Research Centre
Situated on Level 3, the Library & Research Centre holds over 2000 books related not only to transportation and its history, but also books on art, design and technology, street art, enamel signs, museology, and so on. There are several rare books in the collection that were printed in the early 20th century The museum plans to continually expand its collection of books, journals, and archival records, in order to enhance its diverse collection. Visitors are encouraged to spend time at the Library & Research Centre for an enriching experience.
