(UPI) -- It was like 1912 all over again as an exhibition dedicated to displaying artifacts from the Titanic was closed due to water damage.

The following sign appeared at what is believed to be the "Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition" taking place at Atlanta's Premier Exhibition Center:

“Titanic the Artifact exhibition is currently closed due to water damage."

Understandably, people couldn’t help but laugh.


The exhibition displays 212 artifacts recovered from the shipwreck and is described as "an unprecedented opportunity to travel back in time and experience the wonder and tragedy of this ill-fated ship."

It is unknown how long the exhibition will remain closed.

Editor's Note: This story incorrectly stated that water damage closed the Titanic exhibition at Luxor Hotel Casino in Las Vegas. It has been amended to Atlanta's Premier Exhibition Center. The Luxor Hotel exhibition is still ongoing.
