This key was not documented but it seems to be used together with tourism=museum to specify the type of museum with regard to the operator / scope and level.

According to the most popular values it seems that this tag was prevalently used to document the type of entify running the museum.

See also subject=* and museum=* for the type of museum with regard to the exhibits.
