The Museum Data Files (MDF) updated in 2018 are a set of three files which provide information about museums and related organizations in the United States.
This data could be imported in Wikidata. @Alicia_Fagerving_WMSE has already worked out how columns from this dataset could be mapped to Wikidata properties and a SPARQL query to show the existing museums with the corresponding ids on a map. Only 266 museums show up there, while the dataset contains thousands of them: there is probably room for importing more of them!
I think this would be a good task for anyone who attends the OpenRefine workshop at WikiTechStorm.
@Alicia_Fagerving_WMSE is it fine with you if others get involved in this import? Is there anything they should know when working on this?
