Category:Historical museums[edit]

Rename to more standard Category:History museums. Neutralitytalk 05:02, Feb 13, 2005 (UTC)

  • Oppose I don't agree that it is more standard, and it is even more likeley to confuse people. Wincoote 20:47, 13 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Rename. None of these museums is historical - they all still exist. "Historical musieums" surely means museums which existed at some point in history, but do so no longer (in the same way that the Library at Alexandria is a historical library). Grutness|hello?

    • No it doesn't. It is a widely used term for museums concerned with human political, social and economic history, as opposed to art, natural history, technology etc. "History musuems" is a meaningless tautology, which all musuems would belong in. Wincoote 00:55, 15 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Rename. I don't see how "history museums" is more likely to confuse people; seems to me that's the best phrasing for it. Postdlf 23:52, 13 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Rename. How about "museums of history"? Just a suggestion. JuntungWu 15:41, 14 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Rename. "History museums" is clearer than "historical museums," which seems to apply museums that no longer exist. —Lowellian (talk) 10:52, Feb 15, 2005 (UTC)
  • Rename, same reasons as Lowellian Bryan 10:11, 16 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Alternate rename => "Museums of History" Courtland 14:16, 2005 Feb 16 (UTC)
  • Concur with Lowellian, rename. Radiant! 21:02, Feb 24, 2005 (UTC)
  • Agree with Alternate rename of "Museums of History" -Kbdank71 15:10, 5 Mar 2005 (UTC)
