About the British Museum 

Located in West End’s Bloomsbury district, the British Museum has an astonishing collection of eight million relics. The cultural institution was the world’s first public museum and has more public works than anywhere else on Earth. Although it started as an Irish doctor’s meager collection, the museum’s rapid growth paralleled that of the British Empire during the 18th and 19th centuries.
The museum’s artifacts span two million years of human history and the fascinating cultures that have developed over time. Collections are organized by theme and location, and visitors can browse through mankind’s greatest discoveries of past civilizations.
Departments of the institution include China, the Americas, Africa, Greece, Asia, and prehistoric ages. The Egyptian collection is among the museum’s most celebrated sections with artifacts dating to the time of antiquity. The legendary Rosetta Stone, granite statues, mummification exhibits, and ancient hieroglyphs are among the items to be discovered here. 
Other sections delve into the human relationships with death, memory, desire, and love and there’s an extensive list of objects depicting real and mythological animals. Some of the prized animal works include Greek marble statues, Japanese porcelain elephants, and Neo-Assyrian artwork. 
Entrance to this cultural wonderland is free, but the museum politely recommends a donation of £5. Private tours and special exhibitions are also offered but come at an extra price. The UK touring exhibits are scheduled for a limited time, and it’s wise to find out which presentations coincide with your trip to the British Museum.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!

This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!

I used Bounce during a recent trip to NYC, and I was pleasantly surprised at the ease and convenience of the process. To be honest, at first, I was very apprehensive. The thought of leaving your stuff at a random store, in a place where you are not from and you don't know whether is safe or not, it doesn't matter if anyone gives it a seal of approval, its difficult to be completely comfortable with the idea. However, I was very glad to be proven wrong. The place I chose was a great, clean bodega/deli in Soho and they were very responsive and the whole process felt very seamless. It was our last day in NYC and we had the full day before leaving the city, however our Airbnb was on the upper east side so we did not want to have to go back and forth. I would definitely recommend Bounce for travelers, especially when you need a place to just store your luggage for the day. The price could not be beat (since its for the whole day) and I will definitely be using this again!

Fantastic experience with Bounce! Stored a bag at the Grand Central location and on my last day at the 9/11 Memorial location. Both locations had friendly, efficient staff that were helpful and made everything very easy. Such a great option if your hotel isn't ready or you don't want the hassle of a bag in the city. Great, safe option. Thanks Bounce!
