the fortunate pair will sleep under the louvre’s iconic glass pyramid in a scaled replica that has been designed specially to celebrate the building’s 30th anniversary. as the sun sets on the french capital, the winners will make their way to the museum where they will have an unforgettable night, greeted by an art-historian that will kickstart the adventure with a bespoke tour. after discovering the museum’s wonders, they will have a toast with the mona lisa, followed by an extravagant feast hosted by venus the milo, and an intimate acoustic concert in napoleon’s III lavish apartments. at the end of this special evening, the winning duo will retire to their glass bedroom.

‘we are happy to offer this unique and special experience for two people to stay in the museum overnight, in a bespoke pyramid shaped bedroom. we know that many people would love the opportunity to wander alone at night through the louvre and we want this to be a magical and unforgettable experience. with airbnb’s partnership, we hope to encourage more people to discover how truly accessible and inspiring the wonders of art can be,’ comments anne-laure béatrix, deputy managing director of the musée du louvre.

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.

  • I went to the louvre once with my family and have been dreaming to go back ever since. As an art major I was completely inspired and would love to get the oprotunity to take in as much of the louvre as possible.
