AirBnB is partnering with the Musée du Louvre in Paris as it celebrates the 30th anniversary of the museum’s iconic pyramid.

Now, one lucky winner (and a friend) will get to spend the night of a lifetime at the historic museum. To enter, you’ll need to write an 800-word essay on why you would be the perfect guest at the iconic museum.

“Through this partnership, we are giving a winner and their guest the opportunity to sleep beneath the Pyramid, for one night only,” Airbnb said on the contest’s page.

True to Airbnb fashion, the listing features an “about” section for your host — who is none other than Mona, herself.

“You’ve probably heard of me,” the listing reads. “People say I’m mysterious, but the truth is I’m very friendly. So if you’re the lucky winner, I’ll be delighted to welcome you to my home. I see crowds of visitors every day but the real magic happens when the lights go out.”

The winner will get a VIP tour of the museum which, as the Louvre points out, presidents and celebrities such as the Carters have taken advantage of. The winner will also get to have drinks in front of the Mona Lisa and dinner beside the Venus of Milo statue.


“We are glad to have a partnership with such an emblematic institution which is Le Louvre,” Emmanuel Marill, the Director of Airbnb France, told ABC News in a statement. “An institution which is at the same time important for tourists and Parisians to make them possible to rediscover and to claim ownership with a different way.”

The contest is open until April 12.
