Cup Noodles Museum4.8
The Cup Noodles Museum in Yokohama is a fun place to learn about instant ramen noodles with interactive exhibits and hands-on activities. Among the most popular is the My Cup Noodles Factory workshop, where visitors create their own noodles, choosing broth flavors and toppings, which will be sealed and shrink-wrapped to take home.
The Cup Noodles Park is an athletic course to experience the noodle production procedure, a good attraction for family tourists. There is also a food court styled in an Asian night market, offering noodles from 8 different countries (Italy, Vietnam, China, Korea, etc). The replica of the shed, where instant noodles were invented, and the video theater showing the history will remind you how this food has prevailed over the world in the past 60 years.

If you managed to book a reservation, the chicken noodle making workshop could be a fun experience. The other workshop is purely designing your own cup noodle and personally I feel is not worth it, unless you have an insistent child.
As a museum, it does depict how much cup noodles has been redesigned and also has a show on the invention of cup noodles. However, it is brief and only occupies 1 floor of the entire 6 floors of the building. This place is more of a children entertainment centre than a museum.
Overall a place not worth going out of your way unless tagged with a cup noodle-obsessed child or just an item to tick off your list.

What a lovely experience! The museum has some interesting visuals about the history of cup noodle and its inventor. The best part is making your own noodle.
There are two possible experiences
1) make your own chicken noodles. It takes about 30 minutes and you'll prepare everything from the dough to the packaging. Booking required well in advance, highly recommended even if you don't speak Japanese.
2) make your custom cup noodle, this one can be booked on the day of visit as it only take 10 to 15 minutes, you'll decorate a cup and choose the flavors to be added

It's a fun museum to visit, do keep in mind very little of the exhibition is translated into English. I would advise to download the museum app in preparation so you can read about the pieces at the moment of your visit.
Also, for about $ 3 (May 2019) you can make your own custom cup noodles, you get an empty cup which you can customize via coloring and sketching after finishing this step you go to the filling station where you can choose from 4 kinds of broth and you can choose 4 additional ingredients ranging from dried green union to dried pork. After filling it gets sealed for you to take home.

Such an uplifting museum! Audio guides are free (just use the app) and I really enjoyed the exhibits, the film and ‘making’ my own cup noodle. All of the staff were super friendly. Now all that’s left is to enjoy the cup noodle itself, which must be eaten one month from the date of production. Thoroughly recommend.

Fantastic! You must go here if you stop by Yokohama. Definitely participate in the "make your own cupnoodles" thing if you visit. The information is in Japanese throughout the museum, but for the making of noodles, the staff, as well as translated signs, will help you out. There's also a neat souvenir shop with items for reasonable prices.
If you happen to be holding empty water bottles, the people at the front desk may ask to discard them for you! Very cool 😃
