Although Muslim tourists will not be able to find a prayer room at the Musée Miniature et Cinéma, they may be able to locate a mosque in Old Lyon. Tourists are therefore advised to ask the staff at the museum, or locals for directions to the closest mosque or prayer facilities to Musée Miniature et Cinéma.
Lyon is home to numerous Halal restaurants at which Muslim tourists can dine. If unable to locate one in Old Lyon, Muslim visitors can dine at any of the local restaurants, as these restaurants also serve a variety of seafood and vegetarian dishes. They must however ensure that the items they order are alcohol-free, as French dishes are known to contain alcohol.
