My sister really was excited about going here but was a bit disappointed since it has become more of a tourist trap than anything. I was not expecting very much but was delighted with the town itself. Cute shops, nice location along the river, wide diversity of places to eat and the Buffalo Bill museum. I would say the town...

Of course we were hoping to see the guys but no surprise they were on the road, still really neat to be able to go through the shop and see the items that you seen being picked on the show. Not much to buy here besides fan stuff. I bought a magnet. Lol. Staff at the main shop was beyond... More

I make the trip from Chicago to Iowa City many times a year. I always stop at Antique Archeology of course to get my rusty gold fix. It's always fun to see the tourists taking pictures of the buildings and of course the rusty mascot car out front. Also nice to be around people who have a love of and... More

We stopped here on the way back from Utah. It was neat to see the stuff from the show, but mostly was souvenir type stuff. I wouldn't make a special trip to see it but it's a slight detour off of I-80.

Please keep in mind that this rating could be better but because we are fans of the show, we are keeping it more as an average. And it may be the fact we are fans of the show American Pickers that we were a bit disappointed in the shop. We had hoped to be able to find a lot of... More

I expected more, so in my own mind I was disappointed. That being said as a fan, I did get to see several items I watched the guys pick. I was hoping there would be more things to buy besides show fodder.

Very small and not as many antiques as we expected. They have more promotional items with their logo in them and you will pay dearly for them. We were very disappointed. But we can say we went to one of the Pickers Paradise stores.

Quick stop to shop. Lots of vintage items to ponder over. Lots of advertising merchandise as well. Glad we stopped. Would love to visit the other store in Nashville.
