  4. Growing above a Fossil: Gardening Victoria? Sorry Costa, not so much until the Evolution of this early plant.
  5. The greenest space in the museum: An enclosure within an enclosure within an enclosure? It must be Trees Threes!
  6. Head upstairs and to the east – towards Fitzroy! S = F / (μ n). You don't need a Mega mind to enjoy these Mini models!
  7. A gallery that’s special to our city: What do you call a horse that can’t lose a race? Sherbet? I can think of another....
  8. Don’t go too far! Fine china, French champagne, and children's toys! What else did those archaeologists dig up under Little Lonsdale Street?
  9. Upstairs and to the west – towards Swanston St! "Ring my bell-ell-ell. Ring my (Federation) bell!
