Can I take luggage into the British Museum?

Large Luggage: items over 40x40x50cm or 8kg are not allowed on British Museum premises for security reasons.

In common with all Museums in the capital, visitors bags are routinely checked by British Museum security at both front and rear entrances.  Please allow sufficient time to clear security to arrive in time for the start of your Tour.

Storage for large luggage is available at major rail stations, including Euston, King’s Cross and Charing Cross.
