You could have:

culture=museum and museum=art (or similar) for museums that mainly have
permanent exhibitions of art (I don't know anywhere that only has permanent
exhibitions, as you note)

culture=art_gallery for art galleries that mainly have temporary exhibitions
(many do have some small permanent collections)

shop=art for shops that simply sell art works with no exhibitions

I would guess that in the UK there might be a tendency to use
culture=art_gallery where other nationalities might expect to see
culture=museum. So the wiki will need some clear cross-referencing.

I myself will have a hard time deciding whether some places in London are
museums or art galleries!
