Antique Archaeology Nashville, Nashville

(2.6/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Located in an old car factory, Antique Archaeology Nashville sells repurposed items. Antiques and collectibles are carefully "picked" by owner Mike Wolfe, who stars on the History Channel's TV show "American Pickers." Wolfe travels the country to find old, unwanted products, haggles with everyday folk for a decent price, and then brings the finds to this site, where he and the staff restore them for resale. The small store is often crowded with fans of the show and of his work; you can visit the shop to see some of the items purchased on TV. Fans of the show can pick up t-shirts and various other paraphernalia here as well. Make Antique Archaeology Nashville a part of your Nashville vacation plans using our Nashville travel itinerary maker.

  • I enjoy the show so was neat to see things picked there in the store. I will say that I expected the store to be larger with all the things they buy. However, I was with some Venture scouts and it was a quick stop that another adult and I wanted to run in since we both watch the show. That said, we may have missed a larger part of the store that would have more of the signage and the larger items. Will need to go back and explore further. Keep on picking!
  • It was neat. Most of the items were out of our price range, but we went more for the novelty of it, as my husband has seen all of the American Pickers shows. The staff was great, and they did have some really cool items that I wish we could have afforded. We bought a bottle opener, mostly so we could say we bought something from there, but also because we had beer at our hotel with no opener, lol. It was extremely busy, with lines around the building. We drove by 2 or 3 times before it finally slowed down enough for us to deem it worthy of a visit.
  • The people that work here are just as nice as the people on the show! Really neat to go see so many of the items that I watched Mike and Frank pick over the years. Definitely stop by if you are in the area.
  • The store seems more interested in selling T-shirts rather than antiques. Poor inventory. There is a bunch cool 'Not for sale' Items, a bunch of items thousands of dollars, and then a junky items. Sure, eye of the beholder and all of that, but we witnessed that same reaction from many people in and leaving the store. Nothing of interest under $2000. We went there intending to buy something, but left disappointed.
  • Attended one of the Pickin' Corners where local musicians play for 90 minutes (free) on Saturday/Sunday. Get there early as on weekends you'll wait about 30(ish) minutes in line to get in. This is not a "sit down" style concert. You will be standing for 90 minutes but the music is so worth it. Saw Justin Johnson and he was incredible!!! He plays Americana style music plus a variety of other genre's like Blues, Gospel, etc. And he does all of this on "homemade" guitars! The shovel guitar has beautiful sound. Of course, you can also see all of the cool items that Mike & Frank have collected over the years and can connect some of the items to shows you may have watched.
