There are five of these stations operating in the Castle Museum: one in the King's Cellar which provides a short overview on the castle's hygiene situation over the past centuries. Three stations are located in the Budapest– Light & Shadow – a 1000 Years of a Capital exhibition: one sheds light on the water balance of Earth and the other is concerned with the significance ofequal opportunities and education of women. The third of the stations is about fair trade and it is displayed at the Budapest market section in the exhibition. The fifth and last station is on the second floor of the museum at the Ancient peoples, antique cultures exhibition to explore a recently installed Scythiantomb.
