Unveiled under the theme of “The Innovation Journey of Momofuku Ando”, the Museum is comprised of 3 interactive workshops and many distinctive exhibition corners, perfect for photos. Ticketing is now available online on www.cupnoodles-museum.com.hk for workshops starting from 30 March onwards, where visitors can create personalised products and take them home.

Tasked with the responsibility of bringing innovation to life throughout the almost 10,000-square-foot Museum, Ching Chai will join the crew as Chief Creative Director to offer invigorating experiences and renewed aspirations to arouse and nurture the curiosity and creativity of visitors. In addition to the comeback of the two well-received workshops, “My CUPNOODLES Factory” and “Demae Iccho Factory”, the world exclusive "My Granola Factory" workshop debuts to provide visitors with an immersive experience, which allows them to dive into the story and manufacturing process of this new product from Nissin Foods.
