There were a lot of things from the show but the t-shirts and other trinkets were for sale. The building housing this and other shops was more fascinating. There were machines from the past for marathon automobiles. Worth a visit.

Fun visit to the shop made famous by the show American Pickers. Lots of cool things up for sale and even more of Mike's personal collection.

There was a line to get in but it moved steadily so I waited about 30 min. It was cool to see some of the things Mike and Frank have picked on the show. Its not a large store but they have fit things in there very nicely.

We love the show America Pickers so we really wanted to go see the Antique Archeology store when we were in Nashville. On the show, both stores appear to be easy going antique stores. In reality, they are tourist traps where you have to wait in line to get in. It is more like Panama City t-shirt shop than the... More

This was one of my favourite stops in Nashville. The Antique Archeology store is filled with old treasures in a variety of price ranges as well as non-tacky souvenirs. Its in the most beautiful picturesque old building surrounded by other shops and points of interest too. Expect to spend well over an hour here easily.

We were excited to see an item that had been on a show that just aired the week we were there. The sign was in good shape in comparison to the rusty, dirty, moth eaten stuff they were selling. I am glad we found the store but will never go again.

This was a great visit! It was fun to see a number of items that you have seen on the show for sell here. Some of the items actually list which show they were found. The prices for a number of the items were priced appropriately and not overly expensive. They also had t-shirts, hats, etc. The entrance is on... More

Interesting shop. This is worth seeing, especially if you watch the television show, but the store is small, and the antiques are truly overpriced. We do quite a bit of antique-I guess and luckily didn't see anything we had to have after looking at a few price tags. You can purchase Antique Archeology souvenirs - tshirts, stickers, etc. Also, there... More

We had a wonderful time, exploring all the "Finds" we had seen on some of the TV episodes - that was really cool. We saw the huge pink Pig Head/Mask that Frank tried on in one episode!!! Too Funny! We also explored the old car manufacturing building that the store is located, and enjoyed the history, the machinery, the building... More

The brick building and large tools in halls are architecturally interesting. The stores offer some creative purchases, but the American Picker's store is full of dried up junk. I have seen far more architecturally or vintage items to purchase or be inspired by. T-shirts and coffee mugs are mostly what people bought. There is an art gallery with local scenes... More
