Tenterfield Centenary Cottage Museum consists of the Cottage Museum, General Sir Harry Chauvel Gallery, Petri Pioneer Cottage and various machinery of a bygone era.

General Sir Harry Chauvel Gallery Australia's first general was born at Tabulam Station. His involvement of the Light Horse and his distinguished army career is highlighted in the gallery. The gallery was built from a bequest left by his equally well known artist sister, Lillian Chauvel. Lillian was one of Australia's first internationally recognised women artists. Many of her paintings are also on display in the gallery.

Petrie Cottage was originally situated at 116 Rouse Street, Tenterfield. With its two front rooms made of local pitsaw hardwood, sassafras slab and battens with board roof, it reflects a typical worksman's life style of the 1860s.
