I think we are talking about attempt, though impressive is talking about the attempt and not maintaining..so B is correct

A,D and E are wrong because of subject verb agreement..attempts-has
C is wrong because maintaining is wrongly modifying has not resulted...It is attempt that has not resulted

Imo B .
A,D, and E are out for obvious reasons.

C is wrong because it doesn't tell for what or for whom or for what purpose the attempt has been made. I mean it doesn't even mention museum.

I guess I am not mistaken.
