We’ve All Been There

If you’re part of the 99%, at some point in your life you’ve probably resorted to instant ramen noodles in some form for more than one meal. Now the lowly, but filling, instant noodle meal is being celebrated at its very own museum in Yokohama, Japan.

Opened at the end of 2011, the interactive CupNoodle Museum chronicles the history of the instant ramen noodle from creation by Momofuku Ando, founder of Nissin Foods, in 1958 until today.

The museum features displays on all things ramen, including manufacturing and marketing, a mini noodle theme park and of course a Noodle Food Court.
