    Top Ten Questions

    Can ANTIQUES ROADSHOW provide information about or an appraisal of my object(s) via e-mail, mail, or phone?

    ANTIQUES ROADSHOW only provides free verbal evaluations at our events. We do not provide appraisals or information on objects via e-mail, mail, or phone.

    How can I get an appraisal of my objects?

    ANTIQUES ROADSHOW only provides verbal evaluations in person at our events. If you are looking for an appraiser in your area, we have some suggestions to help you on your search.

    How can I buy or sell an object?

    We cannot give specific advice on the buying and selling of objects. The best general advice we can give is to explore all your options. Dealers, auctioneers, online and even yard sales are all potential ways of selling or acquiring objects. All methods involve costs to sell; some involve costs to buy. Investigate costs, the type of objects being bought and sold and through research, make the choice that best suits your situation.

    Which cities are you visiting on future tours, and when are you coming to my town?

    ANTIQUES ROADSHOW announces each year's tour in early January. When available, tour and ticket information can be found on the On Tour section of our Web site.

    ANTIQUES ROADSHOW visits eight cities each year and we are always researching new cities for future tours. Please note, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW events are only held in May, June, July, and August each year. You must have a ticket to attend an ANTIQUES ROADSHOW event.

    How can I attend ANTIQUES ROADSHOW?

    You must have a ticket to attend an ANTIQUES ROADSHOW event.

    ANTIQUES ROADSHOW announces each year's tour in early January. When available, tour and ticket information can be found on the On Tour section of our Web site.

    How can I be featured on ANTIQUES ROADSHOW?

    You must have a ticket to attend ANTIQUES ROADSHOW and each ticket holder can bring two items. We see over 10,000 objects at each ANTIQUES ROADSHOW event, and ROADSHOW producers select about 80 objects to be recorded for episodes from that city. Among the many factors that producers consider when selecting an object for recording, are its history, rarity and value, as well as our guest's story and the appraiser's insights.

    Can you provide me with ANTIQUES ROADSHOW appraisers' contact information?

    You may use our online Appraiser Index to find contact information for experts you've seen on the show.

    ANTIQUES ROADSHOW is not available on DVD or VHS.

    You can view select appraisals and read appraisal transcripts in the ROADSHOW Archive or watch complete episodes in the Watch Episodes section of our site.
