"Night at the Museum" will become a reality for two guests who will win "tickets" to spend a night at the Louvre in Paris, courtesy of Airbnb.

The exclusive visit will include a tour by an art historian, the chance to clink glasses in front of the Mona Lisa and to dine next to Venus de Milo.

This will be followed by a private concert in Napoleon III's chambers, before the guests retire for the night inside a mini-Pyramid, built exclusively for the occasion.

Communications Manager for Airbnb in France, Celia Zaidi, said a night at the Louvre museum was a fitting way to mark the platform's 10th anniversary.

The Louvre's iconic pyramid also recently celebrated its 30th anniversary.

Deputy Administrator of the Louvre, Anne-Laure Beatrix, said it would be a unique, unforgettable experience to wander the halls of the former royal palace at night.

The winner of the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will be chosen through a competition launched on Tuesday (April 2), in which entrants have until April 12 to answer the question, "Why would you be the perfect guest for Mona Lisa?"

Airbnb will select the most original response and pay for the winner and a person of their choosing to travel to Paris for the coveted night at the Louvre on April 30.

Those who miss out will still have a chance to experience special treatment at the Louvre, as Airbnb is soon to unveil a program of intimate concerts and exclusive visits, to be reserved on their website for a price of around 30 euros.

The night at the Louvre, which has previously organized private tours for guests including Barack Obama, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, follows visits hosted by Airbnb at the Paris Catacombs, the Galeries Lafayette and the Paris Aquarium.
