I discovered this website, which lists collections of European museums. It appears there are several MSX (related) items in the Museon (in The Hague, Netherlands) for example.

See https://www.europeana.eu/portal/nl/search?q=msx

I even found out the Museon has a Philips CDR-X1000 with cable and NMS 0210 MSX interface and a CD-ROM of Tele Atlas that is supposed to work with that!
Other than that, they have a weird cross section of MSX items.

The retro computer museum in Zwolle, The Netherlands has a lot of retro computers with various MSX-machines. There are also several MSX machines playable:

I actually meant some more general museums, not speciic retrocomputing ones. Museon is a large general museum, so I was quite surprised they had stuff like that in their collection.

I remember the Museon having an MSX on display in the 80s! Back then it was to show off the future though Tongue

It wasn't an MSX but seeing a home computer in the Science Museum, London, in a display of "a typical '80s living room" is probably the life event that, so far, has made me feel the oldest.
