When you look at the discussion page for museum [1], you might notice that

Anyway, I would not introduce a new toplevel tag for this, but add
key-value pairs to further specify museum.

I'm not sure about leisure=park or recreation_ground. The wiki page [2] on
leisure=recreation_ground, says that it might be better to replace it with
landuse=recreation_ground. The description of that [3] is not really
appropriate for your purpose IMHO.

Maybe just tourism=attraction ?
