Or the museum could do what Damien Hirst did when the shark "preserved" in formaldehyde that he sold for $11,000,000 starting rotting in the tank of formaldehyde. I had heard that initially when the collector wanted it conserved he convinced them that the deterioration was part of the process. Eventually the shark was replaced with a "new" (albeit still dead) shark.

This has always amazed me, the amounts of money that insecure billionaires will spend to have something no one else can have. I just wish I was good enough to make a story like this up.
