After creating the multipolygon , I realized that its museum symbol and the relative label on the OSM standard layer gets placed on a vertex rather than somewhere roughly in the middle of the multipolygon. Is this a known issue or am I doing something wrong?

the relation looks fine to me. Not sure why that is done. At relation/2972737 it is in the middle. I had a look at some other museum relations, but could not find one which is clearly the same case as yours.

I do not think it is strictly related with the relation being a museum, and not even with being a multipolygon. A similar thing happened to me with a pedestrian area (that I further modified afterwards, therefore the problem disappeared): the only thing these two examples have in common is the presence of some narrow 'branches' emanating from the (multi)polygon.

Seems to be just an rendering error to me. As some other users did, I also checked the data - could not find anything wrong. A long time ago there were problems related to the direction of the outer/inner ways in a multipolygon relation, but I believe they were solved a long time ago as well. Or not. Anyway, since the data seems to be correct, I would not worry a lot about this issue.
