Many great works of art and wonderful artefacts from the past are museum pieces, so it sounds very complimentary in one way.

If he meant it is a museum piece in the sense of being outdated and no longer performing its former function, I would draw attention to Mavis/Amazon and perhaps to a lesser extent even Nancy Blackett. Both examples of out dated technology, one of which is still operating but needs a lot of care and attention to conserve it and the other is literally a museum piece. TarBoard is old technology but with a ittle care and attention it does continue to perform its function for those who prefer to avoid the flashier Hullabaloos of Facebook!
