No, that's not the difference.

A museum is an institution which shows art works so that the public can
see them. The art works are usually by established artists. Shows are
curated thematically by curators.

A gallery is showing art to the public. There is the possibility of
purchase, but it is only a tiny fraction of the audience which actually
is buying. The works are by artists the gallery represents. Shows are
designed by the artist (with help or in collaboration with the gallerist).

An art shop is selling art(sy things). Visiting without buying is
possible, just as you may walk through a supermarket without buying
anything. The artworks are for sale are usually more on the craft side
of the arts. They are of decorative nature and not of considerable worth
on the art market. Art works may end there as second hand goods. The
producers of these art works may not even know their work is in the
shop. There is no special exhibition, concept or theme other than the
intent of selling the goods.
