Win a sleepover at Louvre with Airbnb

You probably can’t afford Beyonce’s wardrobe, but you might have a chance at living like Queen Bey thanks to a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity from Airbnb.

The legendary Paris museum, whose I.M. Pei-designed glass pyramid turns 30 this year, is partnering with Airbnb for a special contest where the winners will be able to spend the night alongside the Mona Lisa and other famous works of art.

To enter the contest, head to airbnb.com/louvre by April 12, 2019 and answer the question “Why would you be the Mona Lisa’s perfect guest?”. One winner will be selected, and he or she can bring along a plus-one. The slumber party takes place on April 30.

The winning pair won’t just get bragging rights. They’ll sleep inside a glamorous bright white tent designed to resemble the Louvre’s pyramid, in addition to being given a stack of French vinyl records to listen to during the evening. They’ll also be treated to an intimate acoustic concert inside the lush velvet-lined chambers that were once home to Napoleon III.

Also on the night at the museum itinerary: a customized private tour of the museum and dinner and drinks alongside the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo.

(Thanks to the massive popularity of Jay-Z and Beyonce’s “Ape***t” video, which was filmed on location inside the Louvre, there is currently a $34,000 Carter couple-themed tour, just in case you don’t win a free one.)

Hopefully 2019’s contest will have more success than the 2018 edition: Last year, Airbnb’s night at the Great Wall of China was canceled following concerns that the slumber party would damage the monument.
Airbnb’s one-off Experiences program has also given travelers the opportunity to sleep in a Lego house, in a shark aquarium and at New York City’s Ellis Island.

And, in case you were wondering, the French word for selfie is “le selfie.”
