The owners disclosed that the collapse of the said exhibit has forced the temporary closure of the museum.

Cedar Bay Entertainment LLC owns and operates the said museum and the original Titanic Museum in Branson, Missouri, as per NBC affiliate WBIR earlier today, Aug. 3. The museums are shaped like the real RMS Titanic.

Both Titanic-inspired attractions have an interactive exhibit that lets guests touch an enclosed ice wall to feel its chill, according to the report.  /ra
