Cupnoodles Museum Osaka Ikeda (8-25 Masumicho, Ikeda, Osaka 563-0041, Japan) is a fun place for children and adults to visit when you are in Osaka. Not only you can learn about the history of instant noodles and Cup Noodles, you will also get to learn about the founder, Momofuku Ando.
The museum is not hard to find. Most importantly is that you need to get to Ikeda Station on the Hankyu-Takarazuka Line, then follow the signage or there will be people manning the information counter to tell you how to go there at the station. Admission is free.
You can make your own cup noodles and instant ramen by paying for the activities. Be prepared for the long queue. Weekdays are the best time to go, weekend will be crowded. However, it was quite packed that time when we went there because it was their summer holiday. Their opening time is 9.30pm-4:30pm daily except Tuesday(off day).
Here’s the pricing of the activities:

Elementary school students 300 yen
Adult (Junior high school students and older) 500 yen
My CUPNOODLES Factory
300 yen for each CUPNOODLES
