The Mussoorie Heritage Centre is located at the heart of Mussoorie, next to what used to be the clock tower. As the name stands, the Heritage Centre was opened in November 2013 in a 180 year old building in Mussoorie. It was began with the objective of showcasing and preserving the Heritage of Mussoorie and the adjoining areas. It archives and displays the historical heritage of Mussoorie which dates back to 1814 when the first map of the region was compiled by the Survey of India, till 1959, when HH Dalai Lama built his first colony in Mussoorie.
