Dryfesdale Lodge Visitors' Centre Trust

Exhibitions

Dumfries Road, Lockerbie, Dumfries & Galloway, DG11 1HZ

    Visit this tribute to the community of Lockerbie at the Dryfesdale Lodge Visitor’s Centre, situated by the Lockerbie Air Disaster Memorial and Garden of Remembrance.

    The Dryfesdale Lodge Visitors' Centre is not just a memorial to the disaster but is also a tribute to the tight-knit community of Lockerbie. Since opening, the centre has received many thousands of visitors from home and abroad.

    There are two exhibition rooms in the lodge and also the Dryfesdale Room that is used as a quiet room for visitors to reflect. Visit the centre's permanent exhibition room which displays ten history panels depicting Lockerbie's unique past stretching from its pre-historic origins to 1988's terrorist attack and beyond. Some of the furnishings were donated by the authorities and came from the relatives room at Kamp van Zeist in the Netherlands where the two Libyans accused of the bombing of Pam Am flight 103 were tried.

    Formerly a cemetery worker's cottage, Dryfesdale Lodge Visitors' Centre was opened on 25 October 2003 after extensive renovation work funded by the Lockerbie Trust and is maintained with grant assistance from Dumfries & Galloway Council.
