I first heard about the Instant Ramen Museum from our friends Chris and Hannah. They went to Japan for their honeymoon and visited the museum. After I saw photos of them making their own instant ramen from scratch, I knew we needed to go too!
From the website:
“On August 25, 1958, Momofuku Ando invented the world’s first instant noodles, “Chicken Ramen,” after an entire year of research using common tools in a little shed he had constructed in the backyard of his house. Located in the Osaka Prefecture city of Ikeda, the birthplace of instant noodles, The Momofuku Ando Instant Ramen Museum introduces visitors to the importance of invention and discovery through informative exhibits and fun hands-on workshops like the Chicken Ramen Factory and the My CUPNOODLES Factory.”
