Dedicated to ramen noodle cups, the museum showcases the mind-boggling number of instant ramen flavor variations that have come out over the years and a reproduction of the hut where Momofuku Ando first created them.

The museum has interesting parts, e.g. the noodle factory, and is new and well put together, but does not offer any English descriptions. Better go to the next supermarket and buy a bunch of instant noodles and eat while watching a YouTube documentary about the...More

One of the good place to spend your time with kids. Kids can learn Ramen making process in the museum. The amazing experience was to design the Ramen cup and make one cup of Ramen by yourself.

But even my teenager had fun doing the do-it-yourself ramen at the end. You can enjoy the museum more if you deposit 2k yen for an audio guide. It is refundable upon return of the unit.

We could see cup noodle's history and development process. We made our own cup noodle with our own favor and ingredients. And, we could also draw our own picture on the cup. Great fun!

Although it's a little way out of the main part of Osaka, it's easy to get to by train, and well worth the visit. The museum itself is free, and you can rent audio guides for a ¥2,000 deposit each, which you get back at...More
