Hiding away in a museum after dark and having it all to yourself is the private fantasy of many art lovers, which may soon become a reality for two lucky people. In partnership with the Louvre, Airbnb is giving one winner (and a guest) the chance to spend a night at the famous Parisian museum. When the Louvre closes on the night of April 30, the winning pair will be able to sleep under the museum’s iconic glass pyramid, inside a mini pyramid designed specifically to celebrate the structure’s 30th anniversary.
Before bedtime, however, you’ll get to wander the museum free from crowds, guided by an art historian. Then, you will be able to enjoy aperitifs in a pop-up living room setup, right in front of the Mona Lisa. That’s right — no craning your neck around hundreds of others to glimpse a corner of the painting — you’ll have it all to yourself. And to cap it all off, dinner will be in front of the Venus de Milo, followed by an acoustic concert in Napoleon III’s chambers.
The trip is all inclusive, covering round-trip flights to Paris, Airbnb accommodations in the city on April 29 and May 1, and all meals. To win, simply visit the contest website and submit your answer to this question (in 800 characters or less): Why would you be the Mona Lisa’s perfect guest?
Enter by April 12, and keep your eyes peeled for the winner to be announced on April 19.
