This is more of a gift shop than a true antique store, but some truly unique items are offered for sale, and the store does offer a real connection to the show for 'American Pickers' fans. The staff was amazingly friendly. Not super easy to...More

We watch American Pickers regularly so we were looking forward to checking out Mike’s store when we were in Iowa. It was not what we expected. There were 2 small buildings and they were mostly filled with overpriced souvenirs such as $10 decks of cards...More

I guess the answer lies in your reason for going. If you're just curious about the place, then, yes, it's worth going. If you're a serious antiquer, then, no, you're not going to find a huge selection of great antiques... More

No room to park at the store. But I think there is parking 2 or 3 blocks from there. Easy walk.

We're staying downtown for 4 nights, without a car. What is the best way/value to get around? Is the hop on bus good value, or regular bus, or uber? Planning to go to Cooters place, Opry, Parthenon, Antique Archeology to name a few.

Thanks for the info, glad there is more to see around Antique Archeology, I thought the Hop-on looked quite expensive for what's basically a bus.

We will be staying at Best Western Downtown in early October. We want to sight-see during this time and were wondering if we needed to purchase trolley tickets through Grey-line or would we be able to walk to everything? We want to see the Hall of Fame, Grand Ole Opry, The Antique Archeology store, possibly the Parthenon, Johnny Cash Museum, RCA Studio and also take in some night life.

I highly recommended is the self-guided tour ($15 pp) or backstage tour ($20 pp) of the The Ryman is a block and a few steps from the CMHOF, walk down 4th crossig over Brodway to Demonbruen. (CMHOF is on Demonbruen between 4th an 5th Ave.) Your Ryman tour ticket will get you a $4 discount per ticker/per perso to the CMHOF. Buy the platinum package this includes admission to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, the Celebrity Audio Tour and a guided tour of Historic RCA Studio B (with...More

Visiting Nashville end of August for 3 nights. Husband and I, both early 20s no kids. Like historic, museum, outdoors activities and we like country music. Not into the bar scene, neither of us drink. We plan to stay at best western plus music row hotel because the location is fairly close and price is under $100 a night. Is this a safe area, good hotel? Any other suggestions with similar price. Ok here's the itinerary: Sunday: Drive from ohio to Nashville, arrive around 10am Country...More
