Useful combination tags

Distinction between gallery and art shop

shop=art - An shop selling art. Art galleries may sell the works, but this is not the primary purpose. The distinction with art shops may be tricky. Many art shops are named as a "gallery" but are clearly still art shops. Sometimes a place may be very much styled as an art gallery, but private galleries which are primarily funded by selling the works to visitors would still be tagged shop=art. Meanwhile a private gallery with a high turnover of visitors and relatively infrequent sales (expensive art!) would count as a tourism=gallery.

Distinction between gallery and museum

tourism=museum - Other types of museums such as science / history museums. Note that art galleries very often have the word "museum" in the name. Despite this, if they are primarily displaying art, they should probably take the tag tourism=gallery. The tourism=museum tag has been documented since very early in the project's history, while this tourism=gallery was not documented until surprisingly recently. As such, many earlier-mapped tourism=museum institutions could now be reclassified as tourism=gallery, but this changeover process may happen slowly.
