“HMT House” where HMT Museum and Heritage Centre is located is in the erstwhile residence of Chairman of the company. Our current Chairman S Girish Kumar was kind enough to permit the use of HMT House to set up the museum. This bungalow was designed in the early 1950s by Kanvide and Rai Architects on a lush green landscape of 4.17 acres with a total built-up area of 4,246 sq.ft.The museum is set up with minimum alterations to the structure retaining its original architectural style as far as possible. Similarly, the display structures are created by using refurbished doors, windows, frames.etc. All exhibits are collected from various HMT factories spread across the country.

The HMT Executive Club sponsored the Audio Visual Room and its upgradation. All of the Children park is sponsored by HMT Education Society. HMT Sports Club also contributed generously.

This museum is for HMTians and their extended families, students, technical minds and the younger generation to appreciate the journey of HMT along with the Industrialisation of India.

S. Girish Kumar,

Chairman and Managing Director

Hearty Welcome to HMT Heritage Centre and Museum. HMT started in a small way in 1953 and embarked upon a journey in uncharted territory, grew multifold and contributed immensely to nation-building. Our team has tried to capture the essence of this journey here through images, models and video. It may kindle nostalgic memories in HMT’ians and Fans. This is definitely useful for the students to get an idea about the engineering skills and technology involved in HMT Products. It is difficult to capture the complete essence of a company like HMT, due to its wide range of products, the sheer size and spread. So, take your time, feel the display, travel the Journey. We will be happy to get feedback and suggestions.

When the opportunity for setting up museum came to Common Service Division (CSD), that too without any budgetary support, we didn't know from where to start. Charting in an unknown territory is risky but exciting. When we put our heart and soul into a task, help comes from unexpected sources. Design help came to from students of National Institute of Design and Siddaganga Institute Of Technology. The CSD team, especially the CSD- Watches team, wholeheartedly put in long hours to bring the design to life. Existing materials were refurbished and the museum was set up with minimum investment. I am really thankful to the team and proud of their creation...
