The "German Aviation Pioneer Museum Gustav Weißkopf "
gives an insight into Weißkopf´s/Whitehead´s pioneering deeds and achievements as an early aviator and will answer the question of why he had almost fallen into complete oblivion.
With an introductory film (may be bought as a video), a contemporary and documentary photo collection, documents, books, periodicals, reports, and models, with a working motor replica, and - last not least- with a full scale flown replica of Weißkopf´s flying machine "No. 21", the visitor of the museum is being led through the life and work of Weißkopf.
