Hi all,

Well amenity=* has been something of a default choice in the past, so
the definition is quite stretched from "community facilities" as the
wiki puts it. There are some well-established tags that might be
better as leisure=* or tourism=* if we were starting from scratch. So
I'd suggest tourism=planetarium might be the best choice; but all of
the suggestions are fine really!
