Thompson tours children’s museum: US Congressman pledges support

U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson toured Vicksburg’s newest museum Tuesday and helped its curator come up with plans to fund the educational museum.

Thompson and members of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen toured Pigs-in-Flight Children’s Museum, 722 Belmont St. Thompson said the educational museum is unique in his congressional district.

“I’m absolutely impressed beyond words. Once you get inside, each room becomes more impressive, and it shows that a lot of planning and organizing went into this idea,” Thompson said.
