The Cup Noodle Museum is enormous, looking more like an art gallery than a temple to convenience food. Spread out over several floors, starting with over 3,000 (different) instant noodle packages, there is a recreation of the shed where Momofuku developed his ramen, his story presented beautifully (and the comparisons to an art gallery continue – it really is impressive). The highlight for me, was towards the end, where you have an opportunity (if you book it) to make your own instant ramen in the Chicken Ramen Factory.
The museum shows the 40 year product history as well as founder's creativity, by exhibiting 3,000 kinds of cup noodle packages and recreates Mr. Ando Momofuku's humble research facility. At "My Cup Noodle Factory," you can make your own cup noodle out of 5,460 choices. "Cup Noodles Park" will be a perfect playground for kids where they can experience the manufacturing process of Cup Noodle. And of course you can enjoy global varieties of noodles in the contemporarily designed museum restaurant!
The museum shows a short film introducing the history of instant noodles, together with unconventional exhibits such as a replica of the shed where instant noodles were invented and a visual timeline of instant noodle products from around the world. A small collection of modern art pieces are also on display, and are meant to represent Nissin's approach to creating new and innovative products, some of which include cup noodles (instant ramen in a styrofoam cup) and space ramen (for astronauts).
