  • Great building and unique shops. I enjoyed looking around. I wish there were more shops. There is a coffee shop and a deli. Worth a visit.  more »

  • The look of the store matches the era from which the items come from for Antique Archaeology and the presentation was well done too. Plenty to see and I can remember some of the picks they actually ca...  more »

  • Very historic, loved seeing history here!! This place is adorable and has a bunch of cute little shops. The coffee shop smelled amazing!!!
  • You can't tell from the outside, but inside there are number of shops, a coffee spot, a deli, and some brewery / winery / distillery options. It's actually a lot of fun to wander the inside and learn about the Marathon cars from the early 1900s.
  • I don't think I expected the choices of stores and food to be so minimal. Yeah, it's a cool old manufacturing plant for Marathon Motors, and yes, we could see 4 old cars, but that's about it. We stopped in the deli there and spent over $40 for 3 people to grab a sandwich. Will NOT be going back here.
  • Fun way to spend a couple of hours. Many interesting shops can be found. Plenty of history can be found on the walls. Take the time to stop and read.
  • Very interesting and full of history. The retail shops offer an eclectic array from gifts, clothes, jewelry, home goods and more. A great place to find a unique gift while visiting Nashville. A new deli opened onsite which makes a great addition and gives you more time to shop.

Where to stay in Nashville

Stay in downtown, midtown, the west end, or near Vanderbilt to be at the center of it all in Nashville. You'll find plenty of boutique hotels and major chains in all of these areas, which give you great access to the downtown music scene and beyond. While you can find a bit of everything in downtown Nashville, from larger hotels to apartment rentals, keep in mind that more affordable, and often quainter, options are located further from Broadway. Travelers looking to spend most of their time at the Grand Ole Opry should consider accommodations in the Opryland or Music Valley area near the airport.
