For tourism=* tag, for me, it is just a method to not tag each artwork with
"tourism=attraction" i would suppose (as they are probably all an
attraction), while a parliament *could *be a tourism=attraction, while
another part of it (or another parliament building) is of no particular
touristic value !

The tourism=attraction is more the general way of tagging a touristic
attraction while, the specific tourism=* values are for things that are all
an attraction !

BTW, another thing potentially using this "tourism=artwork" tag are
statues. They have two existing tagging scheme : one using the
"tourism=artwork + artwork_type=statue" and another using the
"historic=memorial" + "memorial=statue". I understood it as the "memorial
statues" have historic values and was another scheme already, but they can
still be an attraction for tourism ! Nothing is easy ahah :p

For the amenity=creche..., in Belgium, we use the "amenity=childcare" for
an equivalent to "creche/nursery". It is a defined tag on the wiki (
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:amenity%3Dchildcare ). I think, the
usage still depend on the country. ;-)
