Why don't they lay it down, mount it on its side, and build a shed around it? That way people can get close to parts that are normally out of reach, and the exhibit can live on. Shouldn't cost that much.

"Initial estimates provided by the rocket center to disassemble and reconstruct the Saturn IB ...exceed $7 million, with no assurance that the booster would survive the process."

They don't like the cost versus the odds.
