One of my favorite youtube channels just uploaded this, and I thought it was pertinent. Easter Island's request to a museum in France is mentioned starting around the 22:00 mark, although I recommend watching the entire thing. Personally, I can see both sides of the argument, they both have merit. And I'm quite glad that I don't work somewhere that would place me in position to make that final decision, whew!
