The Louvre Museum is the world’s largest art museum and a historic monument in Paris, France. It is home to hundreds of thousands of pieces of art. The Louvre pyramid is one of the most iconic landmarks in Paris which also serves as the main entrance to the Louvre Museum. It is a large glass and metal pyramid that was designed by Chinese American architect I.M Pei and is surrounded by three smaller pyramids in the main courtyard of the Louvre palace in Paris.
Airbnb and Louvre Museum have come together to offer an amazing once-in-a-lifetime experience to two lucky winners. The special offer is part of the Louvre’s celebrations of the 30th birthday of the pyramid entrance of the Louvre Museum. Contrary to the norm where we get to spend only a few hours in a museum during the day, this time round you might get to experience the world’s largest museum at night. The special night will include an exquisite dinner and drinks alongside the company of the “Mona Lisa Painting” and “Venus De Milo” on the night of April 30th without any other visitors pushing past to get a better photo with the painting.
After wining and dining, the two will get to relax in Napoleon ILL’s rococo salon before the guests retire to their sleeping quarters in a frosted glass miniature pyramid. They will however not have the freedom to move around in the museum but they will get a personal tour by an art historian.
The museum has continued to attract a wider audience especially in the last year where it broke its record of attendance by welcoming 10 million visitors. The record number was helped by some blockbuster shows including the music video “Apes**t” by Beyoncé and Jay Z that was filmed in the museum.
For a chance to spend a night with Mona Lisa, all you need to do is fill out Airbnb’s form which asks why you think you are Mona Lisa’s perfect guest and whether you are able to travel between April 28th and May 2nd. The deadline to apply for the exclusive night in the Louvre museum ends on April 12 at 6pm Eastern Standard Time.
This is an amazing chance to experience the world’s largest museum when the doors shut and the lights go out under the skies of Paris.
