The biplane is back on the pole. The building that the museum is in looks to be very new (I couldn't stop due to schedule constraints).

Stanzel Model Aircraft Museum

While passing through Schulenburg we came upon this museum dedicated to the Stanzel brothers, who revolutionized the toy/model aircraft business. It's a small, simple, local museum that gets right to the point without overcommercializing. There used to be a biplane on the post outside, but it wasn't there when we stopped by. Bummer!
