Stanzel Model Aircraft Museum
The Stanzel Model Aircraft Museum strives to preserve the creative genius and talent of Victor and Joe Stanzel and promote an appreciation of flying through educational programs and projects. Through Victor and Joe’s example, it seeks to enlighten and inspire all people, young and old to follow their dreams.
One can learn all about the Stanzels and their amazing flying machines at the Stanzel Model Aircraft Museum located in Schulenburg, Texas. Meet the Stanzel Brothers from Schulenburg, designers and manufacturers of some of the most popular 20th century model airplane kits in the world.
Tour the Main Museum where exhibits include static and interactive displays exploring the Stanzels' love of flight. Next door, enter the Factory Wing and learn about the development and manufacturing of model aircraft during the modern mid-century, the peak period of Stanzel production and a dramatic era of aviation and rocket technology evolution. Then cross the museum complex grounds to the Stanzel family homestead where Grandma and Grandpa Stanzel kept a tidy, turn-of-the-century home. The restored farmhouse is complete with late-1800’s furnishings.
Stop by and walk through the museum yourself or book a guided tour. Guided tours give schools and visitors insight into the world of the Stanzel model aircraft. The docents will gladly share their knowledge of the exhibits in our three museums and answer any questions about the Stanzel products. To arrange for a tour, please call or email the Stanzel Model Aircraft Museum.
