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.

This tag is not used frequently, the established tag operator:type=* has double the use (in combination with tourism=museum as of 2/2022), and should probably be preferred.

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

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

Common Values

  • museum=* mostly used for the subject of the museum (history, art, local, railway, etc.)
