With Melbourne temperatures predicted to reach 40ºC on New Year's Eve, I'm glad I'll be spending the working hours of Hogmanay in the cool of Melbourne Museum's air conditioning. A perfect time to visit one of our venues before celebrating the arrival of 2011. We're open on New Year's Day, too.
How will you be escaping the heat?

I would love to have a copy - I am a Ruppell by birth. Are you related to Elizabeth Smith?
Thank you in anticipation.
