See[edit]

  • Bonk MuseumSiltakatu 2 +358-2-8418404, e-mail: . A museum chronicling the bizarre story of Bonk Business Inc, a multinational corporation that pioneered anchovy power generation, advanced disinformation systems and localized black holes. There's one small catch — the company doesn't actually exist — but this firmly tongue-in-cheek museum doesn't let that get in the way of a good story. Advance reservations essential. Adult/student/child 5/3.5/2€.
