Golden Thrones host John DelCollo had the chance to visit the actual 18 karat gold toilet on display at the Guggenheim Museum. The series travels the country reviewing some of the best and most luxurious bathrooms around.
DelCollo interviewed the museums associate director of facilities Mike Zall about the golden toilet and the public response. The piece was created by artist Maurizio Cattelan who titled the work “America.” The toilet is fully functional, but guests can expect to wait up to an hour during peak visiting hours for the chance to admire it or use it.
In the past, Golden Thrones has covered the TARDIS bathroom at The Way Station in Brooklyn, and an interactive urinal video game at Coca-Cola Park in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
