I really enjoy the show and love to find "odd things" to repurpose. I was in the area so decided to fit it in my schedule. It is small and I was pretty disappointed that there was not much for sale. I came to purchase a few interesting picks for my home. I did buy a print that I LOVE... More

We are in the business of picking ourselves, and we wanted to see this place. We were not disappointed, it was very nice and the new building was very nice. They had great items from their picks on TV, and they are displayed well. They certainly do "rock the rust" with their unique items, many available for purchase. I can... More

My son and I we passing by on i80 and I saw a sign for La Claire. Antique Archology was only 7 minutes out of our way so we stopped. There was stuff from the show there, so we took a few pictures. Nobody from the show was present, but I didn't really expect them to be. It was worth... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Antique Archeology. If you're a fan of "American Pickers", you will too. It was really great to see Mike and Frank's home base. The exterior of the original building was exactly as we expected from having seen it on TV. The interior was smaller than we expected and we thought it... More

I watch the show and coming from Iowa myself, I really wanted to "like" this place. But, it turned out to be nothing but a souvenir shop, what a turn off. Next to nothing in antiques to buy. As others have said, it was so small and nothing really goes on here, only a background prop.

The staff were astronomical in helping the guests purchase souvenirs. The only issue was very limited parking, but we were there during Tuffest.

Great stores, nice staff. Loved seeing the items picked on the show on display. Didn't see Frank or Mike but thought we saw Danielle. Like the core values of the show.

We visited Antique Archeology at the end of July, and when we got there, we saw a sign that said they were closed for filming. We were disappointed initially but realized that at least one of the buildings was open, so we checked that one out. After reading previous reviews, we knew we'd be seeing lots of souvenirs for sale.... More

I understand those who may be disappointed by the small stature of the business, the marketing products that consume a large portion of the space, and the NFS tags on the merchandise that is there, but do your research and go anyways. The store is exactly what I thought it would be because I did my research ahead of time.... More
