A recommended trip to the Cup Noodles museum if you are heading to Yokohama! It’s very informative and interesting to be learning about the introduction and history of cup noodles. Would say it is very motivating too. Absolutely kids friendly, whereby both family and kids will enjoy a great time there.

500 Yen entry fee. If you would like to design and make your cup noodles, it’s a separate costs, and subject to availability of the slot.

They have a thematic kind of food court, whereby it showcase all the different kinds of noodles, from a few countries. You can grab your quick bite there if you are hungry. Don’t expect too much from the food. 😆

A good opportunity to try which flavor noodles you like the most!

English translation all around the museum too! 👍🏼

Very entertaining museum that I'd highly recommend for friends and family as part of a day trip to Yokohama.

Started lining up around 30 minutes before they opened in the morning and there was already a queue. I'd recommend going in the morning if possibly as museum admission is separate from the other acitivities such as the cup noodle factory which can sell out later in the day.

There's a cool display of all the products and history on the second floor, but the highlight was the factory where you can 'make your own' cup noodles on the third floor. There's also a food court where you can try different flavours of noodles on the fifth floor.

Total cost was 1500 yen: 500 for admission, 500 for the cup noodles factory experience and 500 for one serving of noodles at the food court.

Personalized + custom flavored cup noodle is a fun activity but tickets (queuing tickets to control crowd) are limited and given away fast so recommend earlier in day or weekday. Costs 500 yen per cup noodle cup.

At 500 yen an entry they try hard to provide an interesting presentation of the history of the cup noodle brand within an aesthetic museum. The employees are friendly and efficient.

There's a cute, small area upstairs to sample small servings of noodles from different countries. Costs 250-500 yen each.

Surprising, but the baggage storage gives you back your coin which is a nice touch.

Recommended for kids! It's fun how you can design your own cup noodles. If you intend to do the above activity I suggest that you book your schedule in advance as the slots get filled up quickly. There is also a small play area on the top floor for the kids.

A fantastic family experience. Highly recommend coming to the cup noodle museum.
The restaurant is very nicely decorated and has a great selection of food. The portions are small which is fantastic. This gives you an opportunity to sample all the cuisines available.
The "make your own cup noodle" is always a fun experience. Great for the little ones to enjoy.
The rest of the museum is a great story about how the cup noodle came to be in Japan. Google translate will be required as the text is all in Japanese. Its a great read.

Who would have thought there are 3000 different packages of cup noodles. This was an interesting tour with lots of history on who and how the cup noodles were started. It was a 3 story building with lots to see and noodles to eat. You can make your own cup of noodles noodles but I didn’t do it because the line was very long very interesting visit

Cup o Noodle Museum

I stopped here because it was always on our dads “to do” list. He’s said it about 10 times over the last year and we finally made it happen.

The museum has a restaurant area with kiosk that have noodles from each part of the world (some parts).

Seating is fast or at least was for us and the food tickets are bought at vending machines located near the cuisine you’d like. It is cash only.

Another great part was the making of your own cup. We made ours to reflect our mom, niece and some for friends.

There is parking in the building.

Overall I had an amazing time here. It was informative, TASTY and inspirational.

Unique museum which shares about the origin of cup noodle. Not so crowded but plenty of school kids tour. 500yen for adult ticket. You can book a slot for the ramen factory. You can also customised your own cup noodle.
There’s a few noodle shops which represent noodles from a few Asia countries. You can try a small bowl of chicken noodle for 250 yen.

Such a fun place to go to!! Was able to buy tickets at the counter when I entered. At first I was hesitant as I thought it was overhyped but then realised that this place has so many interesting things to see and do!! A must visit if you love to eat cup noodles or Nissin! 😚 Definitely make your own cup noodles which is an additional 500yen. So worth it and fun at the same time 🍜🤍

Great museum and hands on experience. Our son was 10 and loved it. I would say it’s best for his age or younger. We didn’t have a reservation. Waited 40 minutes for Cup Noodle making. Ramen noodle making (Chicken Ramen Factory) was full for the day.

Slurp up a steaming bowl of inspiration at the Yokohama Cup Noodles Museum!

This interactive museum is a haven for noodle lovers and creative minds alike. As you wander through the exhibits, you'll be whisked away on a journey through the history of instant ramen, from its humble beginnings to its global domination. But the Cup Noodles Museum is more than just a celebration of noodles – it's a testament to the power of perseverance and innovation.

Words of wisdom from the Noodle Master himself:

"Even if you fail the first time and the second time, keep on trying." - Momofuku Ando

These words echo throughout the museum, inspiring visitors of all ages to embrace their inner inventor. Whether you're a seasoned ramen connoisseur or a curious newcomer, there's something for everyone at the Cup Noodles Museum.

Here are some highlights that left me slurping with delight:

Instant Ramen Time Machine: Travel back in time and witness the invention of instant noodles, from the makeshift chicken ramen stall to the iconic Cup Noodles cup.

My Cup Noodles Factory: Unleash your inner noodle master and design your own Cup Noodles creation! Choose your broth, toppings, and packaging to create a one-of-a-kind culinary masterpiece.

World of Noodles: Embark on a global noodle adventure, exploring the diverse noodle dishes from around the world. From Pad Thai to Pho, you'll discover a🍜🍜🍜 world of flavor!

So grab your chopsticks and get ready to be amazed!

The best experience! The museum was average however the experience of designing your own cup was such an awesome touch. Although you can only make one each and if you wanted more then you’d have to get a ticket for a different time which then you’d have to wait hours for.
The place was packed but the lines were managed well. Sooooo many kids though so some of the pens were mixed with colours which wasn’t great.
Overall I’d definitely recommend!

Amazing experience and many things to learn. It shows the history of ramen and introduces all kinds of ramen around the world. How ramen is made in the factory and also it gives a chance to create your own ramen. You need to make a reservation to create your own ramen. It was totally worth it and was fun.

Great experience coming here to make your own cup noodle! You can buy your tickets from any convenience store where there is a Lawson machine.

The whole experience isn’t very long though, just maybe 30 minutes. The wait line is pretty long as well. But you get the bring your own cup noodle home and then you get to visit the museum with a time line on how cup noodles progressed over the years.

You will need to take a taxi here from the nearest train station, there isn’t a simpler way back since even from the nearest subway or JR station it is a long walk.

Engaging, educational and fun even for adults, my husb and I thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

We reached at 10am but by the time we were there, tickets to ‘make your own cup noodles’ only had timings from 10:30am onwards. What we really liked was actually the theatre to learn how Mr Momofuku invented the cup noodles and how one shouldn’t let failure stop you from continuing. We also spent some time eating noodle flavours from around the world. A little pricey for the portion (¥500 I think for half portion) but 10/10 will go back again!

Spent overall ~2.5hrs there!

Noodle has been and always will be my favourite dish, so I'm really excited to have the chance to visit this museum. They have some workshops to create your own instant noodle, but tickets sell out early, so I get none. However, if you're like me, the most interesting part is the noodles hall in 4F where you can get a taste of noodles from various places around the world.

I had the impression before that this museum displays instant noodles from around the world as well, but all I found is those originated from Japan.

Adult Admission 500¥
Children free. Kids park (younger children) separate.

This interactive museum is designed to stir the creativity and curiosity within every child and provide a rich educational experience. Through the museum’s many exhibits you can learn about the creative thinking of Momofuku Ando, the founder of Nissin Food Products and inventor of Chicken Ramen, the world’s first instant ramen that revolutionized eating customs all over the world. Here you will gather the knowledge that inspires invention and discovery and find the creativity within you by seeing, touching, playing, eating, and having fun.

Honestly, a great spot to take the family, learn about the iconic Cup Noodle and taste it's rich flavors not found elsewhere. Relatively cheap amusement and close to other attractions.
Lunch has a lot of ramen options at cheap prices ranging from 250¥ to about 400¥

Worth the visit if you haven't been.

You need to book in advance for the chicken ramen factory, where you get to make your own noodles from scratch I would recommend doing it as it was great fun but it is all pre booked up and no space on the day. Don't confuse this with the cup noodles experience where you get to decorate your own cup and choose the ingredients we booked this one the day. However a museum about cup noodles doesn't sound that interesting but it's good laugh if you do both experience.

Great place!
I advise you to have about 1-1,5 hours just for museum in order to read everything and take pictures. If you gonna get your personal ramen, it’s another 30-45 mins.
We made a mistake attending a bit late, so we didn’t read and experience all the installations.

Being able to experience the history and creating your own ramen is a nice experience. If you like cup noodles you will like this museum. Chicken ramen creation was a seperate fee and would recommend to get a reservation in advance for the class
