The exhibition was organized by Wikimedia Polska, the Wikimedia chapter in Poland, in cooperation with the OPEN Gallery, an initiative of Polish State Railways that presents open cultural events at selected train stations in Poland.

The WLM images are displayed on B1 size posters placed on six rectangular holders, standing in the main hall of the station, next to the stairs leading to the platforms. The exhibition consists of 10 posters with winning pictures of Polish monuments, 13 posters with pictures of monuments from all over the world, and two information boards, one describing the Wiki Loves Monuments competition and the second advertising participation in Wikimedia projects. Posters with photos are accompanied by QR-codes directing to the relevant Wikipedia articles.

OPEN Gallery has provided the display location and media outreach. Wikimedia Polska prepared and printed the posters. The main coordinator and initiator of the exhibition is Adam Kliczek (User: CLI).

Photos can be viewed in Warsaw until 27 January, then they will be transferred to the railway station in Gdynia or Wroclaw.
