Located at a distance of 3 kms from the Library Bus stand in the main market, the Mussoorie Heritage Centre is a social enterprise showcasing the rich culture and heritage of the hilltown of Mussoorie. Established in November 2013, the Mussoorie Heritage Centre basically displays the archives of the historical heritage of Mussoorie back from 1814 when the National Survey compiled the first map of the region; to 1959, when the 14th Dalai Lama took refuge here in Mussoorie. Seeing these cultural curations will help the people understand how Mussoorie is shaped and what its leagacy has been.
The father-daughter duo - Mr Vinod Kumar and Ms Surbhi Agarwal - took the humongous initiative with the objective to preserve and showcase the rich cultural heritage of the tinsel town and the adjoining areas. In addition to the numerous exhibits, paintings, artefacts and historic evidence records, the Mussoorie Heritage Centre conducts regular research programmes, curated walks, city tours; to give an elaborate perception on what actual Mussoorie was before commercialization took over. With the idea to spread awareness about the traditions, customs and culture of ancient Mussoorie, the owners indulge and partake in several induction programmes and awareness talks in collaboration with NGOs, Women Development Groups and also in local schools.
