The Paris Museum Pass does not work for entry. The desk holds a photo ID during guided tours in order to issue the headset. To avoid being separated from a passport bring a drivers license.

I was in Paris last September 2018 and had a 4 day Museum Pass. Opera Garnier is NOT included in this pass. I have booked a guided tour for a Saturday at 2pm and it was great. A lot of people of course but it's worth it.
