It is a timely and creditable effort to collect all the artifacts just now before they disappear forever from  apathy on our part. When  you visit the museum you might think what is so special about this artifact I have one like this at home. But you might discard it tomorrow due to space constraints or vastu advice or because you were getting a good bargain. You are under no obligation to preserve it. Furthermore the curator has gone to great effort to collect all artifacts one might find in say for example a Rajasthani Kitchen. That fact helps you visualize what a Rajasthani kitchen in the days gone by looked like and what utensils were used and how they used them.
