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.

We went in a large family group of 7 adults with a very reluctant patriarch who would rather be visiting galleries and architectural monuments. The creative possibilities of decorating your own cup and designing your own special ingredients from within the range on offer had Mr Bah Humbug and the rest of the less artistic of the group completely engaged...

Excellent fun for all. The museum is small and the main activity is making your own ramen pot. We made 3 pots and wish we had done more, but couldn't really carry them back on the plane. They tasted really good for pot noodles. The staff are really helpful.

Went there during weekend and was crowded with tourists and even locals! Joined the queue to slot money to purchase cup, after which we were being led to the tables full of colourful markers to decorate our cup noodles. Spoilt for choices to pick the flavours and ingredients. Brought a decorated cup noodle back for a friend and she really... More

Actually I have been to another Instant Ramen Museum in Yokohama; this was the first visit to the Momofuku Museum in Osaka. I think there are more display of Mr Momofuku personal belongings at this museum on the third floor of the museum. I made a Cup Noodle with my drawing and preferred flavor of the ramen soup base and... More

This place is popular with local as well as tourist. If you intend to make your noodle, you need to make reservation in advance especially on weekend. Slot in money to a vending machine to dispense cup. Draw your own design on it and proceed to the counter to let the staff to add your preferred flavor and toppings and... More

The ride out is a pleasant half hour and allowed us to visit a typical Japanese suburb. The museum is not huge and you can finish it within 1 hour, unless you book yourself into one of the noodle making workshops. The regular make your own cup noodle activity is open to everyone. There was no crowd when we got... More

Family of 4 Australian's loved this place. Daughters aged 11 and 13. We spent a few hours here making our own noodles in a cup. We were unable to make the dough from scratch as they were too heavily booked and we didn't have time to wait around or come back later so we just made our own noodle cup... More

The main attraction is to do your own cup noodles. Once reached the place, the staff recommended us to do the cup noodles first. Help is given if you are not sure. Though the final product is wrapped in a bubble when you leave the place, you have to deflate it first before you pack it in your luggage. Defeats... More

We were apprehensive when we first stepped in but the whole experience was Just great. The hands on activity was interesting and fun. The explanation was in Japanese but there was translation headphones available.
