I'm thinking of the security issues something along the lines of a huge traveling smithsonian exhibit were to be targeted by a Traveller Party out to make a huge profit off a heist.

Visitor shuttles would give security a buffer. It would make it hard for people to swipe Cleon II's Firetruck, though it would be a rockin' adventure!

Maybe not a museum, but part exhibit / recruiting office. This was kind of the thought I had when someone asked about uses for old Scout ships. Clean them out, fill them with displays / propaganda and drop them on a planet somewhere.

You probably would not have any major relics or really important artifacts aboard. It would primarily be filled with data, on some media, and replicated artifacts.

Of course an interstellar book mobile is probably not what you have in mind. It would be more cost effective, and less a target for conventional piracy or robbery. But not as cool.

Default A spaceship!

Here is my latest design. I've been designing spaceships for a while and I just this week found Mongoose's FREE!! designers pack. I love that last part, and the system isn't bad either.

The TSS Rambunctious, a spacship design for Mongoose Traveller
With deckplans too, well sort of.

Cleon II's Firetruck which iis in the Imperial Musium is a FAKE I took the origional and sold it to a Zhodani for 500,000 imperial credits. I replaced the original with an Exact copy made from an Anciet Artifact that was able to replicate small Red Toys. The Ancient artifact then imploded hampering my ability to replicate the entire line of Toy Fire Trucks that were owned by members of the royal familys.

Philosophical question: If it's an exact copy, with no way to tell it apart from the original, is it a copy at all? Are there not just two originals now?

Bring a Psi in. The copy will have a different psychometric aura.

If there's a way to tell them apart, it's not an exact copy, now is it?

Depends on your definition of 'exact' - which is a pretty pointless discussion that I don't intend to waste time on. A single round of humour was enough.
