Oxidation… high atmospheric pressure… natural disasters… human nature… Now bear with me, readers: I propose we set up a museum… on the moon.
Bear with me: With no atmosphere to worry about, there is no concern for oxidation or chemical preservation. With lower gravity, objects are less inclined to collapse on themselves. Theft and unfavourable weather are of course out of the question, so all we’d need would be a stable structure capable of blocking the much stronger UV rays present on the moon and capable of withstanding small space debris that has a habit of knocking into it on occasion.
