For a secret project I’m working on, I need a taxonomy of types of museums (that narrows it done a bit, doesn’t it?)
Because none really seems to exist, I took a stab at one:
History General Cultural Natural History Nature Center Transportation General Aviation Automobile Railway Historic House Historic Site Military Maritime Military General Arts Fine Arts Decorative Arts Modern Arts Science General Computers Aviation (Air / Space) Military General Planetarium Specialized Medium Photography Film Object-specific (e.g. Victorian Doll Museum) Corporate (e.g. Jell-O museum) Personal Children's Natural Zoo Arboretum Botanic Garden Aquarium
Any comments would be welcome (I expect the taxonomy to sort-of come live as data gets added to said project, but I’d like to have at least a start!
