It is good to learn about the history of cup noodles. It's smart to allow you to make your own custom "cup noodle." There is also a noodle themed food court inside made up of noodle recipes of different parts of the world.

The Yokohama Cup Noodle Museum is an absolute gem for anyone looking to experience a delightful blend of history, creativity, and hands-on fun. From the moment you step inside, you're transported into the fascinating world of instant noodles, a seemingly simple yet revolutionary invention that has left an indelible mark on the food industry.

The museum's exhibits beautifully narrate the story of this iconic product, showcasing its evolution and global influence with captivating detail.

Channel your inner chef as you design and assemble your unique blend of flavors and ingredients, culminating in a one-of-a-kind instant noodle masterpiece that you can savor or take home as a quirky souvenir. Moreover, the video stories shared throughout the museum add a rich layer of insight, offering a deeper understanding of the visionary minds behind the cup of noodles and their journey to culinary stardom. Overall, the Yokohama Cup Noodle Museum is a delightful mix of education and entertainment that promises a memorable and immersive experience for visitors of all ages.

Pretty fun but basic museum. Would recommend booking the make your own cup noodle in advance if it interests you, as it was closed in the day we went so we just had the food market and main exhibition floor (which as mentioned was a little basic). It was 500 yen for each activity which wasn’t too bad. Would be a very enjoyable experience for kids and a great intro to museums!

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.
