Airbnb and the Louvre today announced that the museum will be transformed into a magical Home for one night. For the first time ever, passionate art-lovers will have the chance to cosy up to priceless masterpieces, including the Mona Lisa, and sleep under the Louvre’s iconic glass Pyramid in a “mini-pyramid” that will be specially designed to celebrate the building’s 30th anniversary. A night in the Museum For one night only, on April 30, Airbnb and the Louvre are giving a lucky winner and their guest a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see what happens inside the world’s most magical museum when the lights go out.  As the sun sets on Paris, the winning duo will make their way to the museum where they will be greeted by an art-historian, who will take them on a bespoke tour, like those previously given to the Obamas, Beyoncé and Jay-Z. Once they have discovered the museum’s wonders, the duo will enjoy their Home for the night in the presence of some truly legendary hosts: they will toast the Mona Lisa with a cosy Renaissance inspired aperitif, while relaxing on a sumptuous Parisian lounge sofa, listening to the atmospheric sounds of French music on vinyl records. Venus of Milo, the Greek goddess of love and beauty, will then “host” an extravagant feast in a pop up dining room. And lastly, guests will be treated to an intimate acoustic concert in Napoleon III’s lavish Apartments. At the end of this very special evening, the winners will retire to their bedroom under the Pyramid for what promises to be a masterpiece of a sleepover. Exclusive Airbnb Experiences Airbnb’s partnership with the Louvre extends beyond the lucky winner of the contest and their guest; from May until the end of the year, a series of exceptional Experiences at the museum will be bookable on the Airbnb platform. These Experiences, the programming of which will be revealed in the coming weeks, will give everyone the opportunity to rediscover the most famous museum in the world from a totally new angle, with exclusive visits and intimate concerts. How to participate? To enter, simply go to airbnb.com/louvre before April 12 at 23h59 (French time - GMT+1) and answer this question: why would you be the Mona Lisa's perfect guest? One winner will be selected. All terms and conditions of the contest are available on airbnb.com/louvre.
