Museums are institutions whose name is generally officialy defined. For categories and articles related to a museum, we should always follow this official name.

Examples

When several museums are likely to share the same base name, they could be distinguished by appending the city name, using a comma as separator.

Examples

For accessibility reasons, using the latin alphabet is recommended (specially for categories because redirections don't work). For museums whose official name doesn't match, the most current “latinized” name should be used instead. This will generally be the English translation, as found on the English Wikipedia, but the situation must be evaluated for each case.
