In commemoration of Manila Day, Museo Pambata Foundation Inc. blessed their new playground space on June 24.

Bahay Pukyutan Playground features living and learning spaces for children and adults that emphasize the connection and importance of our environment and the natural world.

Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso and Vice Mayor Dr. Honey Lacuna graced the event, and Museo Pambata president Bambi Mañosa-Tanjutco toured the guests around the new playground space.

“We are happy that there’s another place in Museo Pambata for kids to explore and hone their physical and social skills. We believe that this new interactive space will shape the future children of Manila and create a better learning environment for them,” said Mañosa-Tanjutco.

“Once the restrictions ease, we will welcome everyone to Museo Pambata and share the new spaces we created for them to explore.”

Last year, Museo Pambata started working on the outdoor spaces of the museum. Its design was inspired by the late National Artist for Architecture Francisco “Bobby” T. Mañosa, who made an original wooden structure in the old Parks and Wildlife Bureau in Quezon City (now called Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife). Patterned after the geometry of the honeycomb, the interconnected hexagonal shapes of Bahay Pukyutan provide a multilevel play space.

The 450th-year commemorative stamp and coin was also turned over to Museo Pambata, a historical gesture from the City of Manila. Some postcards addressed to the future kids of Manila were signed by Domagoso and were dropped inside Museo Pambata’s vintage mailbox.
