DES MOINES, Iowa – Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds is reopening movie theaters, museums, zoos and wedding reception venues on Friday. Also reopening in time for Memorial Day activities are state campground restrooms, showers and cabins. Camping will be allowed for tents and all campers, but playgrounds, shelters and visitor centers remain closed.
