How do you feel about really old or really historically important things being sold at auction instead of being put in a museum?

I HATE it. This was inspired by an old photo album of the last Imperial family of Russia being found in the archives of the Alexander Palace and the Russian government putting it up for auction. Those photos, plus the album itself, are anywhere from 100-150 years old. It'll be such a waste for some rich guy to buy it and toss it in his closet when such an old historical document should be kept in a museum and studied.
