It is really cool to see the shop from American Pickers and to see some of the items that were featured on the show. The new building is neat, but it is about 75% souvenirs and not many items that Mike and Frank have picked. The souvenirs are overpriced. It is worth seeing once but not worth a return visit.

It was fun to see the store that we have see so often on American Pickers. We recognized several items that we had seen on different episodes. I wish there had been more small items that had been picked for sale versus all the souvenir merchandise, which was fairly over priced. But overall, it was a fun experience and if... More

The anticipation of seeing the place where one of my favorite TV shows promotes proved a joy and a delight. Yes it is small... And it was crowded with other folk like me...and the stars of the show were not there... But it was still great fun to visit! Folk who come can see many of the Pickers acquisitions that... More

La Claire, Iowa is the location of Antique Archeology or as known on TV as American Pickers. It was fun to visit both shops in the quaint town of LA Claire. There were many items in the store that I recognized from the show. The town is located on the Mississippi River and is full of nice shops and eaters.

We stopped here because it is the home to Mike Wolf's PICKERS TV show. There are two buildings housing mostly Mike's collections. We saw very few antiquities for sale. Not sure where they are selling all they buy on the Pickers show, but it is not at this site-- maybe at the Nashville store. There were plenty of souvenir items... More

Neat to see it in person, especially for our kids. It is more of a museum though, not as much for sale as my $50 carrying 6 year old had hoped. They should add cut outs of Mike and Frank to have your picture with. :)

My husband and I decided to visit Antique Archaeology, despite reading some negative reviews. The place looks smaller than it does on tv, but many of the items they have picked on the shows are on display, and that made the television show really come alive for me. There are plenty of items that are not for sale, but there... More

While traveling on business, I made a point to stop here because I love the show. As you might expect, the day I stopped Mike, Frank and Danielle were all out on the road. But the place itself and the inventory is fantastic! I actually bought a couple of items and the ladies who work the shops are so sweet... More

My husband and I are huge fans of the show. We are also antique collectors from Maine. I was hoping to find some small antique to purchase as a memento. My husband had bigger dreams and wanted an antique vending machine! All we found for sale were t-shirts, bumper stickers and coffee mugs. Although it was interesting to see items... More

This is a must stop for fans of the show. The two buildings are much smaller than they appear on tv, and it's right off the main street in a residential neighborhood. I didn't expect to do much shopping so I wasn't disappointed that it's more like a museum or showcase, since we have been to Nashville store and knew... More
