I haven't read through the entire thread, so forgive me if it's been mentioned already: a good way to improve IQ when taking pictures of images in low light is averaging several to many identical images. Take a tripod, compose your shot, take as many images as you want, and then superimpose them in, say, Photoshop. The signal-to-noise ratio goes up with the square root of the number of shots taken. Very effective. Used all the time in astrophotography, but museum photography is another prime application here.

The problem with this suggestion is to find a museum that would permit a tripod. As a person that frequents museums in New York for decades I know that is not an option. Neither is flash.
