At least in American usage, an "art gallery" is not a museum (although there are museums that have the word "gallery" in their name, and occasionally vice versa). An "art museum" is normally an institution with a permanent space that exhibits, but does not sell, art. An "art gallery" is a space, permanent or otherwise, that sells art (and may occasionally also have some art on display that is not for sale). In Seattle, where I live, there are (depending on how you count) roughly 5-12 art museums. There are hundreds of art galleries. - Jmabel ! talk 02:18, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Kept separately
an art gallery and an art museum are two completely different things in most countries. --Foroa (talk) 17:33, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
