Entry fee is 20 euros per person, you get a guided tour (2pm in English) and you can take as many photos as you want!
Before visiting this museum, I only knew Pierre Cardin from his underwear brand. Turns out he's an avid collector as well. We were guided by Veronique Fourcaud, who's actually an actress. She knows the history of the collections pretty well, although she says she's not actually an expert.
On the day I visited, it was the first day for the Marlene Dietrich exhibition, so we got a glimpse before the actual exhibition (which was gonna start at 6pm I think).
The entry fee is indeed pretty expensive, so if you're not interested in Art Nouveau, I don't think you should go. Me and my friend really liked Art Nouveau and we were highly impressed by the collection and especially the meanings behind some pieces.
Souvenir shop is next door, and sells from cheap to expensive. There're chocolates, foie gras in a can, canvas bag, makeup bag/pencil case, wine, etc. The male employee was very friendly and speaks good English as well!
Oh, and if you plan on spending money for fine dining, you might also want to try the restaurant, which opens for dinnertime. I saw some of the menu and I think it can easily cost you 100++ euros, but if you want to splurge, then feel free.
