And believe it or not, it’s the SECOND museum dedicated to the microwavable salty snack of choice for poor college students.
The first museum celebrating packaged Ramen inventor Momofuku Ando‘s vision, the Momofuku Ando Instant Ramen Museum, opened in 1999 and the second will open this Saturday.
While the first celebrates the ability to make noodles instantly, the newest museum will focus on their portability, as it is called the Cup Noodle Museum!
If we had to choose one, we’d stick with the original. Everyone knows Cup Noodles are just an excuse to charge customers 20 extra cents per serving because of the styrofoam cup (which is NOT environmentally friendly, may we add)!
Also, any experienced Ramen noodler knows that they taste best when the water is DRAINED before the flavoring is added to the noodles!
But hey, that’s just our opinion! LOLz!
If you’re looking to learn all about the history of Mr. Momofuku Ando’s invention of Cup Noodles, swing by the museum located just outside of Tokyo in Yokohama.
Attractions include the make-your-own Cup Noodle bar, “the History Cube” and a “Momofuku Theater”, which shows CG movies about Ando’s life.
