Ever been to the Louvre? While it's known as the most famous art museum in the world, that title comes with some drawbacks.

Throngs of crowds parade through its hallowed halls every day, and you'll have to stand in a long queue just to get a glimpse of the Mona Lisa.

SEE: Would you stay in this extremely remote Airbnb deep in the woods?

But what if you could have it all to yourself? Airbnb is partnering up with the Louvre to celebrate 30 years of its iconic glass pyramid, most famous in that one Dan Brown book, by offering one lucky winner and a plus-one the chance to spend the night sleeping INSIDE the pyramid itself!

Not only will you be able to one-up pretty much every travel Instagrammer in the world, you'll also get the whole museum to yourself, coupled with some pretty awesome once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

Hosted by Mona Lisa herself, you'll have drinks with the mystery woman in her own lounge before exploring the artworks on a VIP tour. After that you'll sit down to dinner with Venus of Milo, where a personal chef will prepare a feast that is as gorgeous to look at as the art surrounding you.

Before tucking into your bed under the stars, you'll be serenaded by an acoustic musician inside Napoleon III's opulent apartments.

All you have to do is enter on the Airbnb website and write 800 characters on why you would be Mona Lisa's perfect guest, be able to travel from 28 April to 2 May and have a valid travel visa or authorisation for France.

But if you don't happen to be that lucky winner, do not fret! From May until the end of the year, a series of exclusive Experiences at the museum will be bookable on Airbnb, from intimate gigs in the museum's Café Richelieu to exclusive visits in September where you can take a tour of the Louvre after doors close.

Just stay tuned to their website, and you might be able to have a little one-on-one with the most mysterious woman in the world.
