Presentation of Zygmunt August's tapestries in the Wawel chambers is the only the display of the entire collection remains in the interiors for which one has been woven. The inspiration for the presentation of tapestries is, on the one hand, the original, historic rooms, and on the other, the visual side, openwork structures with fabric.

The original colors of the tapestries had the impact for the colors of the exhibition. Part of the exhibition is dominated by white, which is supplemented with enriched colors. In the second part of the exhibition is used deep, dark, forest green. This color also distinguishes elements - etages, signatures, seats that belong to this exhibition.

As part of the sightseeing, there are three paths for the visitors, which are marked with the peaks of weaving signs: plant and historical. they adapt to different age groups.

The exhibitions are supplemented with educational materials:

– "Bestiary": in some chambers, photos of animals that "came out" from the tapestries. They hide on walls, racks, one can be found by looking at the viewfinder. A work sheet was also prepared, which guided the finding of animals and such additional tasks.

– "The Discoverer's Card": Quests contain quests and historical information. The space after the exhibitions has stripes, stripes, stripes and a gbb leaflet.

– "Puzzle": two sets of jigsaw puzzles representing tapestries

The selected boards are new in the form of typhlographs.
