In this sentence, why is it "museum" and not "museet"? Are both correct? If so, when should I use which?

With words coming from Latin and ending in "-um", in the definite and plural forms, the "-um" is (sometimes, not always) removed and replaced. et museum = a museum, museet = the museum, flere museer = several museums, alle museerne = all the museums.
