NEW YORK - You might feel like royalty if you use one of the public restrooms at the Guggenheim Museum.

A fully functional, 18-karat, solid gold toilet has been installed on the fourth-floor of the museum.

Visitors can make use of it as they would any other toilet.

It's part of an exhibit titled "America" by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan.

The Guggenheim says the piece "offers a wink to the excesses of the art market but also evokes the American dream of opportunity for all."
