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?

You do not have to book, you can just show up. I would suggest coming early as there is a lot of interest in the event.
