it is about the /buildings/ of galleries, libraries, archives and museums
that are at the same time a monument. Of course people should photograph
every glam they can - but only the ones that are also a monument can wín

>>> As for the GLAM category, it is intended to gather pictures of GLAM

>>> located inside them. So if the picture shows only an object and not
>>> the insides of the building (walls, ceilings, etc.), it should not
