Hello, Felipe—Either sentence can be used; the attributive-noun construction is correct, and the possessive construction is correct, too.

I'd be more likely to use "Let's have lunch at the museum restaurant" if I wanted to refer to a particular restaurant that was at some museum.

Other cases include "the church/church's cafe," "the university/university's library," etc. We have a choice, with a subtle semantic difference.
