The museum could be a building like any of the others in town, or (even more fun) it could be a dungeon like set of rooms that allow for dropping objects (but not picking them up) so you could arrange your "exhibits" the way you want.
Some variants already have one.

Berserk Strength increases your to-hit at the cost of some of your AC. It also slightly heals you and makes you immune to fear effects -- though warriors already get protection from fear at level 30.

Berserk Strength does not actually increase your STR score or otherwise impact your stats

If you add all the buffs together (Berserk, Heroism, Bless), you get +32 (internally +96) to_hit bonus. This would take a DL 50 warrior (~300 internal to_hit, and +150 bonus) from 450 to_hit to 542. Against Sauron, this corresponds to a 5% absolute increase in hit probability (74% to 79%) vs. Morgoth, or an effective damage increase of 7%. Against Sauron, it's +6% absolute hit probability and +9% relative damage.

For a priest (or Mage) in combat or with archery, the difference is much, much higher. I always felt Mage really should get Heroism at dl 40 or so, just as a convenience. (At that level, I am nearly always using a ton of archery, and end up with inventory management problems from carrying buffs.)

What fun!
I have found that Rune really buggers Morgoth up.

Oh, I did not know it, completely ignored these spells... Thanks Pete!
