I collected some data about one particular ecomuseum, the “Ecomuseo della resistenza” [1].

The ecomuseum is composed of 8 different municipalities (Aprica, Corteno Golgi [2], Edolo, Monno, Tirano, Villa di Tirano, Sonico e Malonno), so I will create a multipoligon and map it as:
type = boundary
boundary = ecomuseum
name = Ecomuseo della resistenza

But it has also a location inside a building in the municipality of Corteno Golgi, close to this node [3] and map it as a node with the tag:
tourism = museum
museum = ecomuseum
name = Ecomuseo della resistenza

It is ok? Are there other better options?

But since the ecomuseum is not just a physical limited space but it is a sum of areas of different municipality, I should add the tag on that big area?

you could create a multipolygon and make them one distributed museum or map them as distinct museums (and maybe connect them through a tag, maybe “network”).

Should I use the tag museum=ecomuseum?

it’s up to you, it isn’t an established tag
