We went to Le Claire to stop by Antique Archeology. As a fan of the show I was excited to see the 'famed' shop! I knew from reading reviews on tripadvisor to expect quite a few people. We visited on a Sunday so opening is noon. When we arrived 10 minutes before and people were already sitting outside we knew... More

If you like the show this place is a must see. None of the stars from the show were there, many items from the series are in the two buildings. You can get some cool T shirts and "smalls" for your "bundle". Also take a walk down main street nice little town to stretch your legs.

We drove through town and then stopped at a gas station. My wife asked where all of the people were walking too. We drove 1/2 block around corner and found Antique Archeology museum. It was a nice place to vist and very busy. We enjoyed walking through both buildings and looking at items purchased. My wife and I even commented... More

For me, a bit disappointing. I've been an American Pickers fan for years. Visiting the shop I expect to see some items picked and available of sale. Didn't happen. The new addition has some "rusty gold" displayed, but the overwhelming portion of the shop is t-shirts, mugs, caps, sweats, etc. Not what I expected, but I understand. The original store... More

This place is filled with souvenirs (about 80%) and NFS (About 15%), with only 5% of overpriced Items. I pasted up several places to waste my time there.

They have more of their stuff to sell, i.e. t-shirts, coozies and the like than they did antiques. Some of the stuff from Mikes private collection was worth seeing - but if you are looking to buy something it's slim pickins.

It was worth stopping, but I don't think I'd drive too far out of my way to see it. Lot's of T-shirts for sale. No one from the show was there, nor did I expect them to be. It is exactly as it looks on TV.

Even with the second building, it's small. There are some very cool things in the shops, but many are NFS (not for sale) and the inventory does not change much. It's more like a museum than a store.

We came to town for the Twilight Riverboat cruise and had time to stop by this shop the night before. It was fun to look at some of the special items they acquired on their TV episodes. I wouldn't make a special trip to see this store but was fun to go through since we were in town.
