Muslims visiting the Houston Museum of Natural Science will not be able to find prayer facilities within its premises. They will therefore have to visit one of the many mosques in Houston, such as the SGH Masjid Hamza, Masjid al-Amin or Al-Noor Society Central Masjid. They can ask to be guided to a prayer facility near the museum when needed.
