The Tall Ship does not offer prayer facilities for Muslim visitors. Muslims visiting the maritime museum will therefore have to visit one of the many mosques and Islamic Centers in Glasgow, such as the Glasgow Central Mosque, Jamia Islamia , Madrasa Taleem-Ul-Islam and Al-Furqan Mosque. While at the museum, visitors can ask staff to direct them to the closest prayer facility.
Those visiting the Tall Ship will be able to find a coffee shop on board. Although the food items found here will not be Halal certified, Muslim visitors will most certainly find suitable vegetarian and seafood options. The city of Glasgow is also known to house numerous Halal restaurants for those looking for Halal food in particular.
