Melaka Transportation Museum

Melaka Transportation Museum (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) – (View AfD · Stats)
(Find sources: Google (books · news · newspapers · scholar · free images · WP refs· FENS · JSTOR · NYT · TWL)

fails WP:GNG. Nothing in gnews for both English and Malay names. Museum appears to be now closed so that may explain lack of coverage. LibStar (talk) 16:57, 12 March 2020 (UTC)

Related ongoing AFDs include: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Kite Museum (Melaka), Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Melaka Transportation Museum, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Petaling Jaya Museum. --Doncram (talk) 05:33, 13 March 2020 (UTC)

  • Keep. wp:ITSAMUSEUM, notability is not temporary, I expect there does in fact exist substantial coverage, etc. as with numerous other AFDs on museums in this area of the world (all or most such AFDs ending in "Keep" IIRC). --Doncram (talk) 05:29, 13 March 2020 (UTC)
wp:ITSAMUSEUM is an essay. Where is the substantial coverage you talk about? Also WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS is not a reason for keeping. LibStar (talk) 07:34, 13 March 2020 (UTC)
  • Delete Museums fall under notability guideline WP:ORG where it's clearly stated that "No company or organization is considered inherently notable. No organization is exempt from this requirement, no matter what kind of organization it is". I cannot find any evidence that Melaka Transportation Museum meets basic guidelines calling for "significant coverage in multiple reliable secondary sources that are independent of the subject." Simply does not meet basic notability threshold. Glendoremus (talk) 00:24, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
Relisted to generate a more thorough discussion and clearer consensus.

  • Comment: Update: The linked other two museum AFDs have been closed "Keep", obviously. I noticed this was still open, despite it being a museum and notable, as explained in wp:ITSAMUSEUM (an essay which does explain why museums generally meet Wikipedia's wp:GNG). I had noticed a number of sources previously, but now I have added some and developed the article a bit more. I also moved it to "Taman Bunga Merdeka", the apparently common name. The "Melaka Transportation Museum" is the continuing name of an open-air transportation artifacts collection located downtown, in what is also known as "Coronation Park". Yes, the museum (or its artifacts, or a different collection of artifacts) was located during 2010-2015 in a suburban area of Melaka. We only need one combo article to cover the former and current museum, and the park which holds it. There are many more sources available if one searches on alternate terms including "Coronation Park" and "Taman Bunga Merdeka". The AFD is ready to be closed, IMHO. --Doncram (talk) 04:43, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
Coverage of it as part of a World Heritage site, encompassing the historic city centre, may also be developed. --Doncram (talk) 04:48, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
