Floating, includes the submarine. I suppose you could say they are squeezed by the Darling Harbour itself and one day may move......? The shop is large and excellent, huge number of interesting books for sale.

Enjoyed the virtual reality film and walking all over old ships. Like most places like this, expect to deal with lots of school groups. Worth the line waits to visit.
