For more than 30 years, IHLIA has been the source of information and the historical conscience of gay / lesbian, bisexual and transgender Netherlands. In Amsterdam we are located on the third floor in the OBA Oosterdok (library) on the Oosterdokseiland. Visitors can visit the IHLIA plaza at the front of the building where you can also enjoy a magnificent view of the city. In addition to an information desk, an exhibition space has been set up on the plaza. In addition, a small part of the collection can be found.
The OBA is easily accessible by public transport. Subways, trams and buses stop near the OBA. From the Amsterdam Central Station stop it is a few minutes walk. The OBA is located on the left side of the Central Station (if you stand with your back to the station). You walk past the trams and past the Double Tree By Hilton hotel. At the end of the Oosterdokskade you will see the Central Library.
f you come by car, follow the signs to the Oosterdokskade. You can park in the Oosterdok Parking. This parking garage is located next to the Central Station and is accessible from the A10. From the garage it is only a few minutes walk to the OBA.
Under the OBA there is a free covered bicycle parking facility that can accommodate 2,500 bicycles. You can store and pick up your bike here 24 hours a day.
