For those that don't have a "suggested" price, do you mean they don't
suggest a price, or they charge a fix price as in selling movie tickets?

What I mean about the "tax exempt" thing is for an organization to be
tax-exempt as a non-profit organization (and there are different
categories), the museum should make their major income from donation but not
from other activities like sales of things. That's why they technically
don't want to "sell" their tickets but just hint it by calling it "suggested
donation." So it is still a donation.

Are the other museums that you mentioned also non-profit?
