About National Gallery of Art

The National Gallery of Art is a large museum located in Washington, DC, between 3rd and 9th street on Constitution Ave NW. The free museum first opened its doors in 1937 when an extensive art collection was donated by Andrew W Mellon. More art was given, and the gallery grew to be the fantastic art destination that it is today. Not only does the museum hold the only piece by Leonardo Da Vinci in the United States, but it is also home to a 6-acre sculpture garden. Visitors can easily spend an entire day walking around admiring the various pieces. 

While there are many exhibits in the National Gallery of Art that never change, there are also exceptional, temporary displays that frequently rotate, displaying art from around the world. It is one of the largest museums in all of North America. Plan to spend a reasonable amount of time touring the multiple floors and finding various pieces that speak to you. This is much easier to do if you leave your luggage at a Bounce location, enabling you to freely see everything that this museum has to offer.

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!
