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.

Lots of fun and values for money

This fun little museum is about half an hour out of Osaka. It's a free museum and you can make a custom Ramen cup and choose the filling for 300 yen. Lots of fun for young and old.

It is not a big museum but had fun creating your own instant cup noodle, it will cost you 300 yen do get one, they will give you an empty cup and you will be seated to start decorating your cup and once done, you will move to select your flavours and ingredients for your cup noodle and seal it...

for 300 yen, its a bargain as you get to design and make your own instant cup noodle! this closes at 3.30pm so be sure to head here early. the museum closes slightly later at 4pm. we arrived at 3pm so did not have time to tour the museum which was a shame.

I relied on the "nearest station" information for the instant ramen museum which says "Minase St." but when I got to Minase Station, there's nothing there! The correct station should be Ikeda and I wasted a good one hour on the trains for nothing! Please get the information corrected, for heaven's sake!

A place where you can create your own instant noodles. The visit started out with display a variety of instant noodles, a excellent spot for photo taking. After which, for 300yen, you can purchase a instant noodle cup and you will be given colorful markers to design your one-and-only cup design. Once you are done designing your cup, you will... More

A nice easy walk from JR ikeda station to Ramen Museum-if lost simply ask any local, they will be very willing to help out in directing you. Upon entry, greet by different languages guide (english, mandarin etc). The mandarin translator guide had done more than her role as she had remember and when looking for us in the museum. As...

It is a little out of the way and it is not very big, so it can be completed in less than an hour but this museum is a lot of fund and should definitely be on everyone's to-do list in Osaka. Entry is free and there are also free English translations for the two films (2,000 yen deposit is... More

If you have time, I recommend that you make a reservation (online) to make the original chicken noodle package, instead of only the cup ramen (this you can do without a reservation.) The original chicken ramen process starts making noodle from flour and you can create your own package design. I do not recommend this chicken noodle process with young... More

We reached the museum around 330pm and the staff were kind enough to accommodate us. Five star for the service. For a mere 300 yen, we had a great time designing our own cup for our noodles. Then a short queue to select our very own ingredient for our cup noodles. Finally a great cushioned carrying bag for our very... More

For a mere 300 yen, you can design your own ramen cup and choose the ingredient inside. Just remember if you want to learn how to make the noodles, a few months prior reservation is required. The cup one can be anytime and is instantaneous .
