Finding one's way around the American Museum of Natural History can be daunting, and so Google has stepped up to create some new indoor maps and walking directions for the institution.

Starting today, Google Maps users can use their Android phones and tablets to help navigate the halls and the many exhibits.

A similar service is available for more than 20 other museums in the country, including the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.
