Gold toilet at Guggenheim in New York draws two hour wait

- A solid 18k gold toilet is on display at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City and people are waiting hours for the chance to use it and of course, snap a selfie with it. 

Created by artist Maurizio Cattelan, the fixture dubbed 'America' is fully functional and is available for private use by visitors.

Museum workers reportedly clean it every 15 minutes and the toilet's price is estimated between $1.5- $2.5 million.

New York Magazine reports the wait time for the exhibit is about 2 hours.

Of course, many people are taking to social media to share their toilet selfies-- some of the snaps are below.
