Finding prayer facilities at the Museum of Science and Industry will not be possible. Muslims visiting the museum will therefore have to visit one of the many mosques and Islamic Centers in Manchester. The Manchester Central Mosque, Manchester Islamic Centre & Didsbury Mosque and Makki Masjid are a few of the several mosques in the city.
The Warehouse Restaurant and the Warehouse Café are both located in the Museum of Science and Industry. Both offer a variety of delicious snacks and drinks. While the food found here will not be Halal certified, Muslim visitors are sure to find suitable vegetarian and seafood options. Also, due to the city’s sizeable Muslim population, finding a Halal restaurant will not be too difficult.
