After touring Les Comarelles we drove back to Les Eyzies to see the prehistoric museum at 11:15 before the 12:30 lunch closure (the last admittance before lunch is 11:45). The museum (6E admission p.p.) was pretty good but information is not displayed very well. You are also allowed access outside at the top of the building where the old chateau and a prehistory lab are built into the massive wall overhang. After seeing the exhibits we were outside here enjoying the view and the ambiance of just being there when to our surprise we were escorted by a security guard down and out to the main lobby arriving there at 12:14pm!! There we found ALL the museum staff (15+) standing around, waiting for us to leave so they could go for lunch en masse and EARLY. Only in France! Anyway, our allotted 59 minutes in the museum were pretty good, it's interesting but maybe build in a little bit of a buffer time to account for lunch! Allow 59 minutes for your visit! If you have enough time come here, otherwise just go see an actual cave.
