The key max_age=* is used when the visitors of an amenity must not be older than a maximum age. It tells you the maximum age allowed to enter or use a facility. It is the counterpart to min_age=*.
The age in years is used as value. If just a number is given, this will be interpreted as years. The dot (.) can be used as decimal mark.
If you want to express months or weeks, add " months" or " weeks" to the numeric value (singular for 1 week or month, plural otherwise). If necessary, years, months and weeks can be combined. If years are combined with months and/or weeks, please append " years" to the number of years.

- amenity=kindergarten + min_age=2 weeks + max_age=4 months 1 week
- amenity=kindergarten + max_age=3 years 1 month 5 weeks
Until July 2014 the two keys max_age=* and maxage=* coexisted. Both had a wiki-page with similar descriptions.
After a discussion on the @tagging mailinglist these were merged into max_age=*, especially for better readability (
-age is a common suffix, so similar words – like milage, mirage or menage – exist, what makes it harder to read, particularly for non-native English speakers).
