I second this. Gallery, Museum and a shop that sells art are completely
different things.

"I had a look at some famous galleries: the MoMA in New York, the Uffizi
in Florence, the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, the Van Gogh
Museum in Amsterdam, the Musée d'Orsay in Paris, and the Guggenheim
Museum in Bilbao."

Those are clearly museums, not galleries and they are correctly tagged
as museums. Sorry to say this, but that sentence clearly shows OP has
not understand what a gellery is. The wiki pages for tourism=gallery,
and shop=art do explain nicely what the difference is between those.
