The National Mississippi River Museum In Iowa Is Offering Free Livestreams Of Playful Otters

Are you feeling really cooped up right now? Normally, springtime is the best time to get out and explore the Hawkeye State, but COVID-19 has us all on lockdown. Luckily, the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium has launched a livestream from one of their most exciting and entertaining exhibits! Keep up with the museum’s playful river otters, learn about the river ecosystem, and cheer yourself up during these uncertain times.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

The Otter Cam is live from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, and you can find it right here! There’s no better way to spend a day in quarantine than by watching these playful otters dance, splash, and entertain themselves. They would love to know you’re watching them, too!
