Coventry Transport Museum makes the perfect learning environment for school visits.

Women’s Transport History Research Project

Women played an important role in the history of transport, supporting their colleagues during times of peace and stepping up when they were most needed during both World Wars. Through stories told by the women who worked in Coventry’s factories and our archival information, this guide unlocks their hidden histories.

This chronological guide (find below) can be used as part of your visit to explore the Coventry Transport Museum galleries and collection to find facts, quotes and images, to explore the untold history of the role women played in the transport industry.
