Three people were injured after part of an artificial iceberg collapsed at a Titanic Museum in the US state of Tennessee on Monday (local time).

In a statement on its Facebook page, the owners of The Titanic Museum in Pigeon Forge said the park was immediately closed following the collapse.

"Our iceberg wall collapsed and injured three guests who were taken to the hospital. At this time,  we do not know the extent of their injuries. Needless to say, we never would have expected an incident like this to occur as the safety of our guests and crew members are always top of mind," Mary Kellogg Joslyn and John Joslyn said.

The park reopened the following day, but without the iceberg. 

"The iceberg wall does not currently exist, and the affected area has been blocked off, for the time being. We anticipate it will take at least four weeks for the iceberg to rebuild," the owners said.

Its website calls Titanic Museum the world's largest museum attraction. The park includes a large scale Lego Titanic and a Titanic merchandise shop.
