Default Wood Sealent

I just finished staining a small table my wife's Granfather made 50 years ago.

Does anyone have a suggestion on a finishing product to keep it looking good for another 50 years?

I was thinking of a polyurethane product.

Not sure what I need to be honest.

I've finished staining so it's on to this next. It will be indoors, but it's a 50 year + piece and I would like for it to be around another 50 years.
