Airbnb is hosting a once-in-a-lifetime sleepover at the Louvre

Cool Sh*t / 10 April 2019

This is not a drill. You and a friend could WIN an overnight slumber party at the Louvre.

Art revellers and travellers alike have been flocking to the Louvre since it first opened way back in August 1793. There lies iconic art pieces like the Mona Lisa, and now you can catch some zzz’s the mysterious lady herself, alongside the entire vat of precious art thanks to one epically proportioned competition. Teaming up with Airbnb, the Louvre are giving one winner and a guest the chance to spend the night at the world-famous museum.

The lucky pair will get to sleep under the museum’s glass pyramid inside a “mini pyramid”, designed to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the architectural icon.

The prize doesn’t stop with this jaw-dropping pop up accomodation either. Your evening starts with a VIP guide taking you and your guest on an after hours tour of the museum. Presidents and celebrities have had this exclusive opportunity. Now it’s your turn.

Next you will enjoy Renaissance-inspired apéritifs with Mona Lisa. With a pop-up living room created especially for you and your guest, relax and unwind together in her sumptuous living room, nestled in the heart of the Louvre.

Then it’s onto dinner with none other than the Venus of Milo. Here a personal chef will prepare a colourful menu inspired by love and beauty, in honour of this divine goddess.


As the evening unfolds, you will then relax and unwind in Napoleon III’s opulent apartments, as your very own intimate acoustic concert unfolds before your very eyes.

After an activity fuelled evening, it’s then time to cosy up under the iconic Pyramid and drift off to sleep beneath the shimmering glass and starry sky. You will wake up with a Parisian breakfast in bed.

In addition to the overnight stay, the prize includes the following sweet perks:

  • Round-trip economy class flights for all non-French residents (if the winner lives in France, equivalent transport will be arranged to Paris)
  • Two nights in other Airbnb accomodations in Paris on April 29 and May 1
  • All meals and ground transfers in Paris during the trip

We hear your collective pleas – how do you enter?! Well all you have to do is answer one simple question:

“Why would you be the Mona Lisa’s perfect guest?”

A panel of judges will pick the winner based on how he or she best answers the question.

To enter, visit and submit your answer by April 12 at 11:59 p.m (French time 5:59 p.m. ET). The winner will be announced on April 19.
