What a great idea! It’s always wonderful to hold a piece in your hands to examine it.

Kendall Museum 3D Prints Ancient Artifacts for Children to Handle

(Inside3DP) The UK’s Kendall Museum in Cumbria has a large collection of 3,000 year-old pieces of the most fragile ancient objects, including statues and Egyptian pottery. Now, the staff are allowing children to handle as many objects as they like, with no concerns at all. This is because they have 3D printed exact replicas of each and every one of them. 3D experts at Lancaster University printed the 3D models of the ancient replicas. This was part of an ongoing project to make typically inaccessible historical artifacts now available to as many visitors as possible.
