Took a photo standing next to the famous van and in front of both stores. Didn't see any... More

I've watched the show but wouldn't call myself a fan. A visit to their shop didn't change that. Too crowded for my liking. Facilities are small. Other people seemed to enjoy it which is great for them. Souvenirs were too pricey in my opinion. At least I can say I saw it.

It's a small space which is mostly just a tourist stop for fans of the show and not much of an antique store. Much of the items are not for sale, but there are some items you can buy (they are not cheap, though :)). A good chunk of the space is dedicated to the shows merchandise (t-shirts and such.)...

Off the beaten path but appears to be in an up and coming retail area. Outside looked just like it does in TV show but only sign is on the door or hours are shown on the lower part of front window. I would have expected a larger sign over the door. Space looks larger on TV. Saw a lot... More

We have been traveling from Illinois to Iowa once a week for the last several months and decide to sidetrack to Antique Archeology in Le Claire, Iowa. After enjoying the TV show for years it was interesting to see the Le Claire location and some of the items that Frank and Mike have purchased on the TV shows displayed in... More

JMJ Don't blink when you get close because it's kind of tucked in ,right near the police station. You are on an uphill street so you get a little nervous about parking but there is a small lot behind the store-actually two stores since they added the new building. You expect it to be a little larger if you've watched... More

Anyone that watches the show will be pleasantly surprised to see many items you have seen on television. The buildings and grounds are impeccable, however it seems it is more gift shop than antique shop and in my opinion, ridiculously overpriced. A great stop nonetheless.

If you are a fan of American Pickers this is a must stop. On our way from Rockford, IL to Burlington, IA we made a side stop and was happy we did. No Mike, Frank, or Danielle but the young ladies who were there were very helpful and friendly. You will recognize a lot of stuff from the show, but... More

We drove to Leclaire Iowa from St Louis for my wife's birthday surprise to see antique archaeology. We had a great time, we enjoy American Pickers so actually seeing some of the things from the show there was fun ! If you are a fan it's well worth it. LeClaire is a nice river town with lots of things to... More
