Not claiming that many of these are "good", just brainstorming. Or maybe
Flagship (I actually like this one)
Fabrication - Fabricatorium
Fabulation (it is a word)
Femto-infinity (weird math)
Feretory (look it up)
First (Evan's favorite word)
Force (as in may it be with you)
FUBAR (maybe a separate room in the museum)
