    Great place for the kids
    Interesting, need to be early for the cup noodles making. 500yen for adult entry. Everything is about the photo you take with the cup noodles at the entrance… 30mins to experience the museum, 30mins to queue for the final photo… The park opp the road is distracting the kids haha

    Just go
    I have been wanting to visit the Cup Noodle Museum for a very long time, and it exceeded my expectations. Would highly recommend you arrive well before the 10am opening time, at least 9:30am, because they start selling tickets early and on weekends the time slots sell out quickly. We did the general museum (500 yen per adult) and then booked in to create our own cup noodle ramen, which is 500 yen per cup. Making your own cup noodle was great. Do not skimp on this. It is well worth the money. The museum itself is small, and the cartoon you watch about the history is in Japanese. Highly recommend you ask at the ticket counter for an English info book. For kids, they have the play park, which is 500 yen per kid and probably a bit pricey for 1/2 hour play time. They also did a safety briefing AND walked the kids through the play area for the first 10 minutes. My 5 year old was ready to tear his hair out wanting to bolt and just play already! The World Bazaar was good as well, definitely worth the pit stop to enjoy some noodles. Overall, an enthusiastic 5/5. Yokohama is a lovely area to visit, so include the Cup Noodle Museum!

    Cup Noodle
    The Cup of Noodle Museum is a good rainy day activity if you have extra time. Admission is free for kids. There is lots of information on how Cup Noodle came to be. The diy Cupnoodles is fun. You get to color your own cup for 500 yen then you get to add your choice of flavor and toppings in your designed cup. They have you package it in an inflatable bag which is great if you're planning to bring it home as a souvenir. Be prepared to wait. You have to make a reservation to go into the design area. Skip the Cupnoodle park unless your children are under 5 yrs old. For 500 yen it's kinda of a rip off having them go through two slides and a light up room. They do have a mini tour for the kids, but my 7 and 9 year old were not impressed. Also needs a reservation before hand. The Noodle Bazaar. Bring cash. Uses a ticket system like you would at a small ramen shop. It was fun to try the different dishes. There was a bit of a wait round noon. I would not recommend the soft serve cupnoodle flavored ice cream unless you are really into your ice cream tasting like cup noodle.

    Don’t miss Cup Noodles. This is a great place to check out.
    Has to be one of the best attractions in the area. Don’t miss this place. Go early. Inexpensive way to spend some time at Yokohama. I had no idea how Cup Noodles ever came about until I went through this place. Very interesting.

    Must do! What a highlight!
    Our local guides, Shun and Noriko, recommended that we visit Cup Noodles when in Yokohama. We're glad we did. It made our day memorable. This Museum is huge with many floors -- some we didn't have time to visit. We primarily went to make our personal "Cup Noodles," with custom design on the Styrofoam cup and selected condiments, eg, curry, kim chee, onions, cheese. Next, the cup was made portable with airtight, inflated, plastic bag with a carrying ribbon. We could have stayed another hour to see the museum exhibits. 1000 yen pp.

    Must do in Yokohama!
    One of the coolest museums I’ve visited! Adults and kids can all find stuff to enjoy. Highly recommend!! Very affordable for a family on a budget as well! The food court on the top floor was a bonus and wonderful addition to a great experience overall. Recommend paying the 500 yen to decorate and make your very own cup of noodles!! The entire staff was exceptional!

    Very fun experience!
    A must go if you are a cup noodle fan and with kids. Entrance fee was very reasonable about 500 yen. You can go early (10am opening) to queue for ticket to make your own cup noodles. We went at 10am and got a ticket for 1030am. It was very organised - you purchase an empty cup (with cover) and is directed to a table with markers where you can add your own designs. Then you proceed to a construction line where you can choose your own ingredients etc. If you wish to make your own noodles from scratch, you must book very early (check out their website for more details), we couldn't book any slot 2 months earlier. There are some sample stalls on the last floor (500yen per small bowl) of noodles around the world - malaysia, thailand, vietnam etc. Not very authentic but still good to eat. We spent about 2-3h at this location

    Great creative afternoon
    What a fun thing to do. It costs 500 yen for everyone over 18 to enter, it's then 500 yen to make your own cup of noodles. It is time slotted we were lucky when we arrived a time slot was about to start. It's was a good afternoon sitting at a table with strangers all decorating our cups and showing each other our end results. The whole process is a great way to spend time together and be creative. Would highly recommend coming here.

    Worth a visit with kids if you are in Yokohama
    Visited whilst on day trip at Yokohama. The museum was ok but basic.The highlight was putting together your own noodles which our two kids did. The noodles were sealed and packed in a bubble for travel. We also tried out the Noddles Bazaar that had stalls selling noodle dishes from around the world. The noodles were delicious but you only get a small sampler so don't expect to be satiated with one dish.

Its a very spacious compound with every section laid out neatly, it shows the history and life story of founder of Nissin Mr Momofuku Ando. How he overcame his problems and came up with a noodle that changed our lives. It is very informative and the entire space is bright and easy to walk around.

There is also a huge area to DIY our own cup noodes (extra charge), please try!! Don't be taken aback by the long queues because it moves very fast, and there is staff there to allocate seatings for you. It was a really fun experience and nice souvenier to bring back.

Lastly, don't forget to check out the souvenior shop, i bought some really cute Nissin cup noodle magnets, a nissin noodle eraser and even a tee shirt with the cute chick mascot. The tee is not expensive and good quality cotton. They also sell limited edition cup noodles only available in some countries.

This is the second cup noodle museum I visited. The area is much bigger than the one in Osaka. The exhibition is also different, the movie before you enter the exhibition is very interesting and really helps you understand the story of cup noodles.
The booking system for making your own cup noodle is different from the one in Osaka, I like the one in Yokohama more.
The food court inside is also interesting with a lot of different countries noodle that you can try. Small portion for each so that you can try a few more different types. Good for the westerner who don't normally eat noodles.
Overall experience is excellent.

Cup of Noodle Museum in Yokohama, Japan. Entrance fee was ¥500 yens to see the contents of the museum and ¥500 yens more to “Make your Own Cup of Noodles.” Was forewarned to make reservations for “Make your own Cup of Noodles” experience and this recommendation is correct. Luckily we arrived just when it opened and several open slots (perhaps no shows) were available to participate in “Make your own Cup of Noodles” activity. While we were making our Cup of Noodles, approximately 50+ school children showed up along those that had reservations. Instantaneously, the place filled up. As for the museum portion, not much to see. There were wall-to-wall displays of ramens over the years. As for make your own Cup a Noodle, this activity is more geared for children.

The museum was located in the heart of Yokohama, with nice view to the wheel. For the entrance fee of JPY500, we could enter and explore the history of instant noodle making, learn more about the noodle. And with an additional of JPY500, we could make the noodle ourselves. The museum was relatively small, but it was fun for families with young children.

We showed up in the evening towards the end of the operating hours and were able to purchase tickets as walk ups. We were given a time to be at the make your own noodles, which gave us plenty of time to wander through the museum part.
It begins with a film about the history of Cup Noodles which had English subtitles. It’s a great story of perseverance and ingenuity. The museum is well spaced out for crowds with many interactive displays for children and adults.
For the making your own Cup Noodle, you do need 500 Yen (in cash) to buy the cup and get started. You are directed to a child sized table with markers to decorate your cup. Once you are done, you go up to the line to have your cup filled with noodles and different toppings. I used my Google translator at the table to read the different toppings, so I was prepared when I got to that part of the line. We all stumbled through it, but it was a fun experience!

We wanted to see this particular museum as we have heard some pretty cool things about it. If you are already in Yokohama and have some time to spare then do drop by and experience this yourself. The cost isn’t too expensive but you should probably like instant noodles quite a bit to visit. You have to pay extra to design your own cup but it’s really just drawing and colouring some designs on the cup then choose your soup base and toppings. We didn’t try the Chicken Ramen Factory which might be more fun but we didn’t really see much point in experiencing it. There is a small exhibit cube of the evolution of their instant ramen noodles through the years if you find that interesting and a small recreation of the shack where instant noodles was born. The noodles “bazaar” is not worth your money or the calories just give that a pass. Overall it’s a cute little thing to do but only if you are already in the area and have time to spare.

We went on our first day in Japan and had a great time making our own noodles and exploring the museum! The interactive workshop is so unique. You can design your cup noodle cup and choose broth flavours and toppings. The museum also has a lovely little video about how cup noodles came about and an exhibit showcasing the entire history! I definitely recommend for anyone looking to add something fun to their itinerary. The gift shop is also adorable with fun letter keychains and other souvenirs.
