Prayer Facilities

Finding prayer facilities at the National Museum of Pakistan will not be possible. Muslim visitors will however be able to use the facilities offered at one of the many mosques in the city of Karachi. Some popular mosques in the city include Masjid e Tooba, Aram Bagh Masjid and Makki Masjid. There are however plenty of smaller, lesser known masjids located throughout the city.

Halal Food

It is unclear if the National Museum of Pakistan has any food outlets. Finding Halal outlets to dine at in the surrounding area will however not be a problem at all, since Karachi is a Muslim city. Visitors to the museum can therefore ask staff at the attraction to direct them to the best Halal restaurant nearby.
