Unfortunately, TSA no longer allows lockers at airports in the United States, so you won't find self-service luggage storage at any airport in the country.

You can always call your airline and see how early you can check a bag, as some will allow you to check luggage hours before your flight. 

Additionally, it's worth noting that larger hotels will often store your baggage for a fee, even for those not staying at the hotel.

Be sure to call ahead to confirm they offer the service. 

Why not check out the Airbnb-style option above?

 Fortunately, several museums in the city offer luggage storage while you're a visitor at their museum or gallery for a small fee or for free. It is for museum patrons only.

Be sure to call ahead to be 100% sure, as policies may change.


Also, take note that these museums do not take responsibility for your bags nor do they offer any insurance for storing your luggage. 

The National World War II Museum, Mardi Gras World, and the New Orleans Museum of Art all permit you to leave your bags for free while visiting their facilities.
