They have any interesting publications? Sometimes museums will have printed material that you can't really find elsewhere.
Also... Tom Hoving (ex director of the Met in NY) made the point that one is well served to buy a collection of postcards from museums that you visit since they 1) are probably the best pieces and 2) are photographed better than you could hope to yourself.
RE: Latex. You can get a 2 part kit where you mix the gook together and then you can coat whatever it is. In the case of a barrel, I'd swsh around some oil in it first and then build up a few coats inside. It you don't make a plug you should be able to ease it out.
