There are still quite a few of them indeed, some of them even still flying.

I think I know the ones you're talking about in Milan, they're located opposite Milan Malpensa airport. However due to the Corona crisis it's currently not possible to go there.

As for a flying DC-9, you need to get to Kenya where FlySAX / East African Airlines still operates a DC-9-10 (5Y-XXA) that was originally delivered to Air Canada in 1966. That makes this aircraft 54 years old and still going strong. It's one of the oldest commercial aircraft still in use.

Just because I stopped arguing, doesn't mean I think you are right. It just means I gave up!

RP-C1544, an ex- Cebu Pacific Air DC-9-31, stored close to the international airport in Manila.

I took these pictures in October 2018. It’s a strange place. It’s not a museum but rather looks like a private villa or something similar. The entire area is fenced in but the owner was so kind to keep a tiny opening in the wall. It has a cover though. So to take these pictures I had to push the cover upwards with one hand while trying to take these pictures with the other hand.

Not sure how preserved it is, but at the Metro Tech facility at OKC there is an AirTran DC9-32 on their ramp along with a few other planes.

There is an all-white DC-9 at MSP being used for fire training. Appears to be a -51 as it has the nose strakes. It is easily visible from the airport viewing area near the cargo ramps in the middle of the airfield. I saw it for the first time last week while at MSP for the day and have not researched it further to determine previous identity.

The Pima Air and Space Museum has a U.S. Navy DC-9 in their collection (and possibly also a second one.)

It must be there, but I can't recall seeing it on my visit. Is it near the CRJ?
