What a let down ! We love the show With the exception of a few items that we had seen them purchase on the show, very disappointing! Was more like a souvenir shop not a place to seek out antiques very small place I am guessing they have shifted everything south to Tennessee

If you are fan of the American Pickers show then this is a stop for you. Stopped by as we were passing through on our way out west. Not a huge place, but two small buildings, one with the finds of the pickers and one with touristy T-shirts, etc. (And no Danielle was not around at the time.) Worth a... More

It was very cool to see items on display that appeared on the show and you know how they retrieved that item. Thou I tend to wonder where all the other items are they buy on their adventures. There has to be another location (maybe the Nashville one??) that the public thinks is just a antique store that sells the... More

We didn't tell our two teenagers that we were stopping at Antique Archeology. They woke up when we parked and told them we had to stop to stretch our legs. They were so surprised! We took some pictures, bought some souvenirs and spotted quite a few items that we remembered from American Pickers. All in all, a nice place to... More

If you are a fan of the show, you need to stop. Dropped by on a weekend getaway. Have been in the Quad Cities area several times through the years but never stopped. The old service station building was as seen on the show. Not a lot of picked items, lot of souvenirs. They have expanded into another brick building... More

We really enjoyed our stop, maybe because the reviews on Trip Advisor prepared us for what it actually is. In fact we were pleasantly surprised, because there are many items on display (and for sale if you can afford it) that we remember from episodes of "American Pickers." We treated it like an antique museum and browsed through their displays... More

If you are a fan of the show, this is a must stop. Don't expect to see the stars, although they do show up occasionally. You will recognize a lot of the picks from the show. Plenty of souvenirs to buy.

2nd visit here. Were traveling through to Minneapolis, and hadn't seen the new building so we stopped in to take a peak. Recognized a couple of the clerks from the show, along with some of the items on display. They have t shirts and various other items for sale, not too bad on price for " souvenir " items. Did...

Finally got to Antique Archeology after being a fan of the show for years. The original blue building was much smaller than I thought and there was more Antique Archeology souvenirs than there was picked items. I can't understand where all of the merchandise we see picked on TV may possibly be hiding. Went into the newer brick building which... More

Cool displays and some items from the shows that we remember. Some of the souvenirs were fun looking but nothing really grabbed our attention. Fun to say we visited it but of course the TV crew and Mike, Frank and Dani are not around.
