It's never been a problem and instead of being thanked we get kicked in the gut. We 'private museums' get our stuff out for people to see and touch in carefully controlled environments, something dusty museums with stationary displays rarely do.

Amazing to me something we've done for decades is suddenly dangerous and needs shutting down. In an odd way it's 'them' that we are honouring and bringing their achievements to the public.
