Is this sentence grammatical and semantic correct?

I feel like I already belong to a museum!

or

I feel like I belong to a museum already!

or it should be something completely different?

    Whereabouts you place already makes no grammatical difference to a puzzling statement. People don't normally belong to museums, at least not until they're dead and mummified. Dec 5, 2018 at 18:21

The idea of belonging to a museum isn't a common one.

As a native speaker, this would probably prompt me to ask you:

  1. Do you mean that you feel like you are living as an exhibit in a museum?

or,

  1. Do you mean that you feel like you have a membership to a particular museum? (Many museums in the US offer yearly memberships to reduce the cost of entry to people who visit frequently.)

For the first case, I would say "I feel like I'm on display in a museum."

For the second case, I would say "I feel like I already have a membership to that museum, but I can't remember right now."

So - as your question stands currently, no, it isn't semantically correct because it is so ambiguous as to be unanswerable.
