actually if you call a gallery like the national gallery or the
Gemäldegalerie in Berlin an "art museum", you are not wrong, but you loose
one level of detail: a gallery as a kind of art museum only collects and
exhibits paintings, while more generic art museums might collect anything
related to art, like sculptures, video, paintings, prints, ...

2 problems with tourism=gallery: it is not clear, which kind of gallery is
intended, and either way "tourism" is not a nice key for these (neither is
it for museums).
