While finding prayer facilities at Villa des Arts may not be possible, the city of Casablanca is a Muslim city, which means that Muslim visitor will definitely be able to find prayer facilities throughout. Muslims visiting the museum can therefore either offer their prayer outdoors, or they can ask staff to direct them to the nearest mosque. Also, a trip to Casablanca is not complete without offering a prayer at the Hassan II Mosque; the second largest mosque in the world.
It is not known if Villa des Arts houses cafés or restaurants. Finding a dining establishment in the city will however not be difficult at all. Since Casablanca is a Muslim city, almost all restaurants in the city are sure to be Halal. Visitors to the museum are advised to ask museum staff to guide them to the best Halal restaurant nearby.
