...galvanic corrosion.

Someone has already suggested keeping moisture out... For that solution
to work well the joints should be dry first. Getting them dry could be
interesting.

I can't find my museum conservation textbook but...

My guess is that the aluminum is the anode and will break down. The
copper will probably remain intact.

Someone with more metallurgy than I will have to speculate on how much
the oxide film will insulate the connection.
