* '''"It's too dangerous for us!"''' This usually occurs in AnAesop about the GreenEyedMonster. A group finds a treasure/MacGuffin and decides to split it. But soon, [[GoldFever everyone's turning on each other]] in order to get more than their own share or in order to get the [[ArtifactOfAttraction artifact]] all to himself. Eventually a truce is reached when the group realizes that [[NoMacGuffinNoWinner what they found is more trouble than it's worth]], and the item gets sent to a museum instead. Although, it's a very common story that a MacGuffin, under the care of a museum, will be the [[DangerousDeviceDisposalDebacle target of theft or cause trouble in some way]], so it takes a certain amount of GenreBlindness to believe that this really will solve the problem (in such cases, more GenreSavvy characters may decide that the only safe alternative is to [[NoManShouldHaveThisPower destroy the thing]]).

* Inverted in ''ComicBook/StarWarsDarthVader'', in a sequence homaging Franchise/IndianaJones, where an adventurer breaks into a vault where old superweapons are stored, and dodges a variety of booby-traps before being caught just as she's about to get away. She insists that the MacGuffin is too useful to be left gathering dust in a museum -- "It belongs in an armory!"

* A comic example occurs in HarvestMoon Animal Parade during a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6DgHaToDuM cutscene]] in which Calvin, the resident Indiana Jones {{Expy}}, angrily declares this line to [[TheFool Luke]] and [[TheBigGuy Owen]], who are trying to smash down a millennium-old wall in order to get to more ore.

* Billy Quizboy of ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' says this often to his nemesis, Augustus St. Cloud. They are rival collectors of movie and TV memorabilia, and Billy points out artifacts that St. Cloud displays in his home that should be in a museum--or at least a Planet Hollywood. He does have a point, considering that St. Cloud has been known to use the original [[Series/MisterRogersNeighborhood Henrietta Pussycat]] puppet to wash his genitals. But it could also just be SourGrapes, since Billy couldn't begin to afford a collection the size of St. Cloud's. Ironically, Billy has ''stolen'' articles from museums on a couple of occasions.

* There's an urban legend about the Hope Diamond that brought misfortune on whoever owned it. This stopped when it was donated to the Smithsonian Institution. (Although the curator once took it in his pocket to an exhibition in another country and had an extremely bad trip).

* ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga A Civil Campaign]]'': Miles offers his grandmother's old saddle to Ekaterin. His grandmother being the daughter of the Emperor, Princess Vorbarra and Countess Vorkosigan. When Ekaterin exclaims this line, Miles replies that it was made to be used, and belongs under a fine lady, not glass.

** There is a similar moment with a valuable old violin in ''Falling Free''. Madame Minchenko ''used'' to keep it in a climate controlled vault, but then she realized that musical instruments are meant to be played.
* LordOfTheNightSky: Inverted, kindof. Ted has strong views about cultural appropriation, and believes that native artifacts should be returned on request. That said, he also thinks that research are both good reasons for a museum IF you have permission.
* [[Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians Piper MacLean]] has a moment like this when she is told the dagger she is holding belonged to Helen of Troy. Annabeth explains that Half-Bloods live surrounded by ancient stuff and it's meant for them to use.
