Coinciding with the 30th anniversary of the construction is its famous glass pyramid, Airbnb raffles an exclusive stay to sleep inside.

As did the security guard played by Ben Stiller in the movie 'Night in the Museum', sleeping in a world-famous museum is now within reach. And not in any one, but the Louvre in Paris, one of the most important and the most visited in the world, which will host guests for the first time in its history.

On the 30th anniversary of the construction of its famous crystal pyramid, Airbnb will organize a raffle for two people to live a unique experience, sleeping inside the museum on April 30 and surrounded by works of art.

Pyramid of the Louvre

Take the aperitif before the Mona Lisa, dine with the Venus de Milo or enjoy an acoustic concert in the domains of Napoleon III are other fantastic proposals that encompasses the experience.

The winners will be received, at dusk, by an art historian who will offer a personalized tour of their facilities and, most importantly, without people. A privilege within reach of very few, like Obama or Beyoncé.

After the guided tour, the lucky winners will be accommodated in a room specially built for the occasion: an original and ephemeral bedroom that imitates the original pyramid and is located just below it.

From there, they will take an aperitif inspired by the Renaissance with the Mona Lisa, with French music in the background, and then have dinner with the Venus de Milo, the Greek goddess of love and beauty.

Finally, you will enjoy an intimate acoustic concert in the rooms of Napoleon III.

How to win a night at the Louvre

To participate in the contest, participants must access the company's website for holiday rentals until April 12 at 23:59 and explain, in no more than 800 words, why they would be the perfect guests of the Mona Lisa

From among all the answers, a winner will be chosen. The name of the winner will be announced on April 19.

From the Great Wall to the Louvre

Airbnb already launched a similar initiative last summer, in that case to sleep in the Great Wall of China.

In that case, criticism in social networks about the manipulation and possible damage to the monument, World Heritage by Unesco, forced the firm to withdraw the contest.

On the contrary, the company's proposals to sleep in a Lego house, in a shark aquarium, in the Transylvania castle that inspired the character of Count Dracula and in Ellis Island in New York City were successful.
