The chateau is the location for filming of the TV series Merlin. It is a stunning architectural monument inside and outside. Some reviews say it's not worth visiting inside, which I would absolutely disagree with. Anyone who decides not to go inside is missing a real treat. There's lots to see, especially the main hall and the underground crypt containing the remains of several kings of France.
We spent a few hours wandering around the various parts and had a thoroughly enjoyable visit.
The shop and ticket office is one of the best I've come across. Lots of extremely high quality and interesting gifts, books and souvenirs, as well as a good selection of Merlin merchandise.
Take time to have a wander around Pierrefonds village as well. It's a really pretty place with some good places to eat.
