Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I know that Osmand and Maps.me have search option for tourism attraction but it returns all of them, sorted by distance.

Is there any tool (program, app, overpass query...) that would list them ordered by importance?

So for example major museums, famous tourism attractions will appear before tiny gardens, unimportant wayside crosses, boring memorial plaques and uninteresting churches?

It should be possible to generate such list with OSM data (for start, one may use wikipedia tag as indicator that something is at least sort of important).

I know that there is not an existing tag to directly tag importance of a given object and that there should not be one.

Is there really a rule that it is not OK to ask on this site question that was asked at any other website? Clearly it would be wrong to ask the same question as was asked here before, but treating help.openstreetmap.org and reddit as one seems absurd to me.

Asking the same question in multiple places - without telling people that you're doing this - means there might be unnecessary duplication of effort. Someone may spend the time giving you an answer in one place, and then an oblivious person in another place may waste their time giving you the same answer. If you're going to cross-post, at least include a link to anywhere else that you've asked the same question so interested parties can see which answers have already been given. This recommendation applies to any online Q-and-A or forum site, not just this one.

"person in another place may waste their time giving you the same answer" - makes sense, now answers are linked. Sorry for not doing this, what you describe never happened for questions that I asked and I failed to consider that it may happen. Sometimes, like in this case I repost question in a different place but I do it if I am convinced that receiving answer is very unlikely in place where I already posted.
