not to forget
historic=monument and memorial

what about changing tourism=museum/artwork to culture? culture=museum, artwork

What about subtagging art galleries:

I feel that tourism=gallery is less then clear, at least it could be
art_gallery, because gallery has a hell lot of significations and
tourism can't clear that either.
