Antique Archaeology Nashville, Nashville

(950+ reviews on the web)
Gift & Specialty Shop
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.

  • Watch the show so guess I expected more. Very small store. Looked like junk to me except for the new stuff for sale.  more »
  • Evidently we got lucky, because there were no lines and we were able to leisurely shop and enjoyed looking at all the JUNK finds. I was a little surprised that the store was so small - I am sure they ...  more »
  • Love the show. Shop totally underwhelming. Nothing to buy except t shirts, mugs and jiggers. Did have a couple of pieces of interesting Nashville memorabilia.  more »

  • Very near. Sky high prices on picked items but novelty items plentiful for purchase. Worth a visit even if not can of show. Also walk around the entire old Marathon Motors building. Original brickwork and flooring. Really neat building lots of tools used on display throughout building. 1914 when it was opened in operation. Lots of history here.
  • Cool place to visit and see some very interesting stuff. While I didn't have the time to really buy anything that was antique, I did get a shirt with their logo... Unlike most places selling shirt these days that shrink up after one wash, the quality of shirt was excellent and I've washed it multiple times holding its size properly. Thank you for quality and still keeping the price a good one.
  • Visited the Le Claire Iowa location last Aug..so this trip had to visit Nashville one while there. It was smaller, which involved a wait in line to enter, only ten minutes or so. It is located in older industrial area..kewl. Inside had nicely displayed pick items for sale and yes pricey. We did see items from their episodes..that was neat. Especially noticed the eyeballs at the cash. If your a fan it is interesting.
  • The store is definitely smaller than it appears on the show. My husband was so disappointed in the size. Also, a lot of items are not for sale. It's awesome that you get to see a lot of the items they have picked on the show, but most of them are not for sale. Parking is a bit crazy but there's a lot across the street. There's a bunch of other cute shops to look at too and a place to do whiskey tasting as well.
  • Its a great experience. If you are a fan of the show American Pickers then you know that this is the Nashville Store. It is crazy to walk through the store and see the items picked from the TV show and remembering the place and story from which it was picked. They also have novelty items that you can purchase to remember your visit. Keep in mind the items in the store are for sale and they are the prices as seen on the show.
