Been a fan of cup noodles, I was really looking forward for this museum. This museum is really inspiring and i learnt a lot about the instant noodles & its creator, Mr Ando. What makes this museum most interesting is the workshops available. There are two workshops, one is My Cup Noodle, where you get to design then choose your own flavor & ingredients for the cup noodle. The other one is Chicken Ramen Museum where you get to make a pack of chicken ramen from the scratch like kneading the flour to packing the ramen into a packet you designed.
The Chicken Ramen workshop requires reservation from online beforehand. I checked it like a month before I leave and it is already full. So please reserve early. Anyway, I was lucky on the day I went over. Went to the counter & asked and they happened to have 2 slots at 415pm for me even though I went at about 11am. This whole workshop last for about 90 minutes. As for the Cup Noodle, you have to go and get the queue number on that day itself. Went at about 11+ and managed to get a 3pm slot. So be there early! Take the queue number first before you explore the museum.
There is also a theatre that shows a clip on how Mr Ando started making noodles. Interesting show that comes with English Audioguide. Do ask from the staff before you enter the theatre. There's also a play area for kids & a ramen corner which I didn't get to go as it was really crowded, though it was a Monday.
Admission ticket allows one to re-entry (Keep the ticket stub!) Thus, after I explore the museum, I headed to World Porters (besides) for lunch before I make my way back for all the workshops.
Overall, I totally enjoyed my stay inside. However, I think it is more on the workshops that makes this whole experience to a better level. So do go for at least one workshop!
