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?

Hi Rebecca, I also have one of these silver 2 cent coins from 1966. Did you ever find out if they are valuable?
