Google is adding more indoor maps to the Google Maps app for Android devices with indoor maps and walking directions for over 20 museums in the United States. Among the new maps is the de Young Museum in San Francisco, the American Museum of Natural History, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and 17 Smithsonian museums.
To access the floor plans, simply open Google Maps on your Android phone or tablet and zoom in on the museum of interest. To find the museum, either search for it by name using the magnifying glass icon or, if you’re already there, use the “My location” feature to orient yourself. With the “My location” feature enabled you can even get indoor walking directions.
Google noted that it plans to add even more museums to Maps in the near future, including the National WWII Museum in New Orleans and the SFMOMA. A full list of museums added today is below: expand full story
