Prayer Facilities

Muslim tourists will not find prayer facilities at the National Archeological Museum; however they may be able to locate a number of unofficial prayer facilities in the city.

Halal Food

Although the National Archeological Museum houses two cafés within its premises, these outlets are not Halal certified.
