First time in the Cup Noodles Museum yesterday. It was my favorite part of our Yokohama day tour. This museum is different from the Ramen Museum in Shin-Yokohama.
The Cup Noodles Museum is located near Yokohama Bay, across World Porters mall and Cosmo World in Minato Mirai. Entrance fee is ¥500. If you want to make your own cup noodles and/or eat at the noodles bazaar food court, etc., you'll have to shell out more yen on top of the ¥500 entrance fee. They're open until 6:00 p.m. but will accept visitors only until 5:00 p.m.

When we got home, we opened and ate our Cup Noodles. :D

(regular Cup Noodles in the supermarket sell for ~¥100)
It's a cool place to bring visiting friends and/or kids. Next time, we'll come earlier so we can still enjoy the other facilities and attractions inside the museum.
