Guided tours

IHLIA LGBTI Heritage is located in the OBA Oosterdok in Amsterdam. On the 3rd floor it has its information desk, reference books on LGBTIQ+ history and exhibition space.

If you would like to know more about the origin of the unique archive, the extensive collection and our services, a tour of the IHLIA Plaza (on the 3rd floor) and / or presentation by one of our information specialists is always possible.

The maximum group size is 15 people (the group will then be split) and a minimum of 5 people. If you want to come with a larger group, let us know and we will see how we can organize it.


Although OBA Oosterdok is wheelchair accessible in the public area, such as the IHLIA plaza with the exhibition and information desk (3rd floor), this is not true of the non-public area where the actual archives are located. We also have no control over any modifications to the building.

Unfortunately, it is also not possible to take a tour of our archives with a guide dog.
