Covid-19 measures

As of December 19, 2021, the rules for visiting IHLIA (and OBA) have been tightened. The collection on the 3rd floor can be consulted seven days a week without reservation. Our exhibitions will also remain accessible. However, adjusted opening hours apply.

A visit is possible provided all rules are followed. Therefore, do a health check before you come to the OBA. During your visit you must keep 1.5 meters distance and wear a face mask.

Monday-Friday: 08.00 – 17.00

Service Requests

At the moment there is limited access to peruse requested materials on the 3rd floor. An appointment with one of our information employees is necessary for this. All service requests are handled on a tailor-made basis. In addition to urgency, the available time, resources and manpower are also taken into account. IHLIA is always available digitally. You can reach us by email at  and our website.

This measure is important because we take the health and safety of our employees seriously. We continue to do our utmost to support you despite these difficult times. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
