[[AC:Comic Books]]
* 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!"

* ''[[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.

* In DelveDeeper, the King will comment on the treasures you turn in. Sometimes he'll declare "It belongs in a museum. Good thing I have one."

* In the interwar period the general opinion about the state of [[TanksForNothing the Japanese armor]] varied between the SoLastSeason and ''this''. At the start of the UsefulNotes/SecondSinoJapaneseWar most of Japanese armored corps consisted of the late-[[RoaringTwenties Twenties]] and early-[[TheThirties Thirties]] designs, and while they were more or less adequate against the Chinese, who didn't have even that, the VillainForgotToLevelGrind, and when Japan entered the UsefulNotes/WorldWarII in earnest, ''[[WhatAnIdiot they did close to zero progress]]'' the IJA, which was responsible for tank development, was constantly sidelined and denied resources in favor of the IJN, which actually bore the brunt of the war. This was understandable, but by the end of the war Japanese tanks were [[TheAllegedCar the everyone's laughingstock]] and hardly ever had any military impact. Even the humble M4 Sherman was ''completely superior'' against ''anything'' the Japanese could field. The Americans had to use fragmentation grenades against the Japanese tank: [[TheresNoKillLikeOverkill anti-tank rounds simply penetrated the Japanese armour, broke everything on their path and came off from the other side]], leaving no other damage but the entry and exit holes (and anything in-between).

** [[BritsWithBattleships The Brits]] were actually hit by the same bug, and their tanks for most of the interwar period were sometimes even ''more'' archaic just remember the [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI straight-outta-Somme monstrosity]] that was the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TOG2 TOG II]], or marginally more modern, but still obsolete while still on the drawing board Churchill. Fortunately for them, they were much, much quicker to get their shit together, and by the end of the war they had some of the best Allied tanks, like the astonishingly deadly Sherman Firefly. Though even their more dated designs like the Matilda still were much superior to anything the Japanese could field.

It had gained the nickname "Queen of the Desert" in 1941; in 1944 it became "Queen of the Jungle". The Australians even equipped it with [[ImprobableWeaponUsage Hedgehog depth charge launcher]] which proved a success against the Japanese bunkers.

* Towards the end of the ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'' special, "[[TreasureHuntEpisode Sodor's Legend of the Lost Treasure]]", [[spoiler:Marion digs up the lost pirate treasure that Sailor John has been looking for. Upon hearing about this from Thomas, Sailor John reveals that he wanted to keep the treasure for himself, and lied to his railboat, Skiff, about donating it to a museum. Thomas tells him that the treasure has been stolen by pirates many years ago, and doesn't belong to them or him. He also tells him that, to ensure it doesn't get stolen again, it's going to the museum Sir Topham Hatt is planning to put it in. Sailor John does steal the treasure the following night, leading Thomas to chase him down to get it back.]]

* In the ''VideoGame/WarCraft'' universe, there is a character named Harrison Jones, a clear ShoutOut to IndianaJones. Naturally, he references IndianaJones frequently, but his character card in ''VideoGame/HearthstoneHeroesOfWarcraft'' has him destroy the opponents weapon, draw cards from it, while he says "That belongs in a museum!"

* On ''ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' Mac and Charlie find a Nazi uniform with medals that belonged to Dennis & Dee's grandfather. They decide they have to get rid of it, but figure a museum will pay good money for it, so yay! The guy running the museum is less than enthusiastic.

* On an Episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Worf, Dax and Dax's old Klingon buddy Kor find the fabled Sword of Kahless, believing it can unite the empire. After turning on one another how it should treated and nearly killing one another at one point they ultimately decide it would tear the empire apart rather than unite it and so the beam it into space in the middle of nowhere.
** Warehouse 13:**
* This is the entire reason why the Warehouse even exists. The artifacts stored in there are too dangerous to leave in the outside world, add many are capstone of gruesomely killing anything that comes in contact.
