Very disappointing husband wanted to go didn't read the reviews. All there were is T-shirts hats mugs & books with antique archaeology printed on it. They had a few cool items no prices and what did have prices were ridiculous. The two places with the small parking lot were so small they only have one bathroom for both men and... More

I took my 10 year old son and 12 year old daughter to Le Claire for no other reason than to go there as myself and my kids were huge fans of the show. The help in the store yelled at my son because he was touching some of the merchandise looking for a price. Come to find out that... More

Traveling from Northern Indiana to Colorado Springs. Easy to find off the interstate. Quaint little town that was asleep when we got there around 9pm. Located on the Mississippi River in a cute little town. Very surprised to see it's actual location. I love the show and their use of camera angles don't show it's actually right behind a BP... More

I visited the LeClaire shop. What a waste of time. Mostly new merchandise I had zero interest in, cool items NOT FOR SALE or a very small number of over priced older items. So different to what you would think Mike would put his name to. I would even prefer it if they had someone sublet the location to offer... More

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

Stopped by while in town, the place is somewhat hard to find as their are no signs directing you. The shop was pretty small and mostly full of souvenirs. A lot of items on display were not for sale and there wasn't any indication there were other locations or warehouses in case you actually wanted to purchase some antique items... 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.
