The fact that death is a common feature of many museums does not mean that its presence would be uncomplicated. Museums often have to take into account  that  death might, on one hand, be something that could be used to spark public interest, and on the other hand, something that has to be handled with great caution so as not to turn the exhibition into a spectacle. How do they do that?
