The thing about museums is that the objects are under lockdown for ever more.
Some of the things were hidden in the ground and had to be dug up, some were stored in people’s houses or castles or temples. Some things like Egyptian mummies were entombed. They have all been preserved by being kept safe and now everyone can get to see them when they visit a museum. All the things in a museum have been kept because they are valuable and rare, even if they were not valuable when they were made.We can’t visit museums at the moment, but their collections will still be there in the future, because museums will keep them on display. Some of them permanently. They will look after everything.
Covid 19 is an unique event in history, so perhaps you could keep a diary or a video diary of this special time and include pictures and references so that people in the future can understand what it was like to be living now. You too can look back at it later and remember what happened.
