Trekked through Nashville and had to stop at Antique Archaeology. Who hasn't watched the popular show and thought "if I'm ever in Nashville gotta stop by?" The place is packed but mainly with tourists and tshirts. There's not a whole lot stuff they've picked that's for sale. Don't want to be totally unfair here- maybe it was just the day... More

Been a big fan of show since beginning do had to stop while passing through. Got there about 15 minutes early on the 8th and had a line already but only about 25 folks. The Marathon Warehouse itself is quite impressive. The store was smaller than it appears on TV but I've found that to be the case in other... More

Have watched American Pickers for years and wanted to visit one of the stores on the show. First of all, much smaller than we thought. It was Saturday when we visited and the store was very cramped. There were some antique items to buy (Pretty pricey) but mostly it was T-shirts and other Antique Archaeology branded items. It's worth a... More

I would expect at least something affordable to buy from the show. Only a few things were for sale but for hundreds of dollars. Where is all the $10-$50 items from the show? I hear it is not in the Iowa shop either. We watch them load the van up with "smalls" but What do they do with them? Do... More

Stopped in because my husband watches American Pickers. Store was smaller than we anticipated. Neat stuff, but nothing we would purchase unless we were furnishing a restaurant or needed antique items for a display. About the only thing you can carry out is a t-shirt or coffee mug. If you're in the area, pop in and say you saw it.... More

Really enjoyed looking through all of the antiques as we watch the "Pickers" therefore know much of their travels and finds.

Don't waste your time. This is not much more than a T-shirt-American Pickers store. It is very small. They are only promoting the show. The items that were picked are overpriced and truly crap. The nice things in the store are NFS...not for sale. Watch the show and buy a shirt online.

Being fans of the show, we were disappointed in the touristy theme of the store... expensive items of limited appeal or Mike's personal collection not for sale. Too many expensive take home items like T-shirts and mugs. I was cool to say we have been and got a few pics but there would no reason to stop back. More of... More

If you're a History Channel fan, you definitely have to stop by! The shop is adorable and filled with all sorts of bizarre finds from the guys of American Pickers. I'm not sure it's worth going out of your way to find unless you're super into the show but still a fun stop nonetheless.

Nice to see American history. Interesting area with some other shops as well. It is approx. 30' from the city center walking distance.
