Arizonans flock to indoor exhibits during hot temps

Updated:
PHOENIX -

People in the valley don't have beaches, so they improvise.

Some folks hunkered down and stayed inside, while others decided to get out, but stay cool.

Phoenix hit temperatures above 110 degrees before noon.

How are some folks staying cool? FOX 10 caught up with some creative ways people stayed out of the sun.

There was no doubt about it--it was hot.

While some braved the heat downtown, others decided to keep it cool indoors.

"It's nice to get out of the heat," said Rachel Garcia.

Garcia and her family decided to visit the Heard Museum.

"It's so nice and cool in here and get away from the heat. It's fun and interesting and something the whole family can do," said Garcia.

The museum is at a refreshing 73 degrees at all times to preserve the priceless artwork inside.

"Why do you want to spend money on air conditioning at your house when you can take advantage of ours?" said Debra Krol, with the Heard Museum.

The museum says they expect crowds whenever the mercury spikes.

Sea Life also saw the crowds Saturday, especially at their new jellyfish exhibit.

From the museum to the aquarium, cool places saw hot crowds.
