Bonk Museum and Children’s Innovatorium
FANTASTIC IMAGINATION JOURNEY
There is no place as wondrous as the Bonk Museum, where you can get to know the history of the Bonk Business Inc. industrial empire. Step into the wild and fantastic world of Bonk. The museum houses things such as defunctioned machinery, cosmic therapy solutions, disinformation systems, and localised black holes.
The museum houses a collection of carefully restored Bonk devices and products from mid-1800s to the 1950s. Bonk is a fun fantasy product based on an idea by artist Alvar Gullichsen. Oy Bonk AB is a fictional family company with a whole history woven around them and all kinds of inventions attributed to them. The Bonk family is known for example for creating “a stimulating anchovy-based relish” and discovering the “dynamo effect caused by the movement of giant anchovies”.
The outbuilding houses a children’s workshop, Innovatorium, where the more age-challenged members of the family can design and build their own Bonk machines.
