About the Design Museum

The Design Museum is in the upscale neighborhood of Kensington, not far from the center of London. Opened in 1989, the museum was originally in a former banana warehouse close to the river Thames but moved to its current location in 2011. This put it close to the other museums of Kensington's cultural quarter.

As you'd expect, the museum is dedicated to design, whether industrial, graphic, fashion, product, or architectural. The museum's top floor is occupied by the Designer Maker User exhibit, which uses objects to guide visitors through a history of contemporary design. The museum has also garnered praise for its Design Ventura project, which challenges schoolkids to design a new product to be sold in the museum store.

As well as the exhibits, the museum houses an important reference library for students and educators. It also has a 200-seat auditorium that holds talks and seminars on topics related to design.

The Design Museum is an attraction in its own right, but it benefits from being close to many other attractions in the Kensington area and throughout greater London. It makes a great place to visit as part of a larger London trip.

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!
