 I agree that the Klngons wouldn't care about the ancient Terran Muses.
 What is
 this building called (and what is the derivation thereof) in those Earth
 languages that have *not* borrowed/adapted the Greek/European word "museum"? 
 E.g. Arabic?  Japanese?  Chinese?  Hindi?  Navajo?  etc.
 In the meantime, how about *{bey' qach} or *{bey'qach}? >>
bey'qach sounds pretty good to me.  The Chinese is bo-wu-guan, meaning 
literally "many things hall."
