Anyone here into either museum-curating educational curriculum enrichment or ebay for specialized items? I have a teacher friend who has a large private museum collection (tens of thousands of pieces, mostly geology and paleontology) who is retiring the museum and wishes to sell. She has thought of a number of ways to pass on this legacy, including inviting other collectors for viewings, selling it off in pieces on eBay, etc. So far insufficient interest has been generated. It seems this new electronic virtual age has little use for hands-on experiences with our natural world. I'd like to pick your brains for ideas we haven't thought of yet.
