TAXI: The Story from A to B
Fantasic For Families

From horse drawn to horse power, the history of the taxi is much older than you think.

 

 

 

The black taxi cab is a British icon along with Big Ben and bowler hats, but did you know this much loved vehicle has been made in Coventry since the 1940s?

This exhibition celebrates one of the hardest working vehicles on our roads, with a wealth of taxis on display from both the museum’s own collection and private lenders. Highlights include ‘Hannah’ a record breaking taxi that drove around the world, black taxi cabs throughout the ages and examples of taxis from around the world, including New York and Japan.

Get up close to taxis of yesterday, today and the future.
