Google Maps for Android received a nice update today that puts indoor Google Maps on your Android device. Part of the update includes indoor maps for twenty museums in the United States. Seventeen Smithsonian museums are included in that total. These maps can be used without an Internet connection (you will need a connection at some point to initially access the maps).
