don't know. It seems that the british art world is not very active on
wikipedia then, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Art_gallery redirects to
art_museum ;-)

The museum article gives this definition that fits well with my own
one: "A museum is a building or institution that houses and cares for
a collection of artifacts and other objects of scientific, artistic,
or historical importance and makes them available for public viewing
through exhibits that may be permanent or temporary."

As you can see, "artistic" is included.

well, not sure for nightclub if it is well placed in culture. We could
discuss about this, I'm not completely against but next you will
propose pubs to be entered as culture? Well, actually could be fine as
well. What do the others think?

no, we will not have to IMHO, and we cannot. This has to be done on a
case-by-case judgement and there might always be room to see it either
way. I don't see this as a problem actually. The more details you add
the better a data consumer would be able to filter it out or in.
