Depends on the visitor
Finding prayer facilities at the Children’s Life Science Center will not be possible. Muslims visiting the attraction will therefore have to find a secluded area to offer their prayers, or if unable to, they will have to return to their hotel rooms at prayer times, since there are no known mosques or Islamic Centers in the city of Tavira.
It is unclear if the Children’s Life Science Center has a café, but visitors will be able to find a plethora of restaurants and cafés in the city of Tavira. There are however no known Halal dining establishments in the city, which means that Muslim tourists will have to dine on suitable seafood and vegetarian dishes at a local non-Halal restaurant.
