We expected to see many antiques for sale but found mostly t-shirts, hats and coffee cups. They have two buildings in good condition but are geared mostly to selling souvenirs for the viewers of the TV show. A few antique items in the store were mostly for display and not sale. Sales people were not sure what some of the... More

One of the highlights of our road trip was stopping at Antique Archeology. We are fans of the show, so it was neat to see where it takes place. On TV, it looks like the store is out in the middle of the country, but it is really only a block from the main road, behind a gas station. The... More

Easy exit off I80, small shops with interesting pieces. Friendly ladies working there. Seemed almost like a tourist trap with way too much Antique Archeology merchandising. Good for about a half hour stop, take a picture by the Nash. Nice little town by the river.

If you're looking for all the finds you see on tv, you probably won't find them here. There were a couple of the bigger, more famous ones, but it's basically t-shirts, hats, keychains, etc. The few cool things that I saw weren't for sale.

This was very disappointing. We took a friend who turned 80 and had this on her bucket list. The town of LeClaire Iowa is wonderful with other antiques that were much better. It is very very small. If you like motorcycles then this would be an awesome stuff for you.

Its a pretty small building but what they have inside is so interesting. We had to stop after watching almost every single episode. We live kinda close but just never made it. Looked around and they have some stuff for sale and some souvenirs. If you like the show you'll like the shop. Plus LeClaire has alot of other cool... More

Stopped on our way south. Parking is difficult if you are towing a RV. It was interesting to see, there was a lot of stuff we saw from the shows, we were able to say "I remember seeing that". None of the stars were there, they said Mike broke his ankle and was home, Dani D was on the road,... More

I don't get some of the reviews posted here - the store was great, we saw lots of stuff from various episodes and best of all, we met Mike! He was really nice, took pics w/ fans, and chatted with us. We're so pleased we got to visit - it was definitely worth the trip👍🏻😎😀🌸
