Both educational and entertaining, the Sir Henry Parkes Memorial School of Arts employs an exciting approach to our history, culture and environment radiating out from the central focus of Henry Parkes and Federation.

The School of Arts facilities are presented through the blending of museum exhibits, a public library, movies, cafe, live performances, the latest technology and hands-on activities within the dynamic architectural spaces.

Taking its place among the nationally significant institutions and Federation places, the facilities tell the implications of:
  • Henry Parkes Federation call to the people within the museum space on October 24, 1889
  • Life and collections of Henry Parkes
  • Tenterfield-Henry Parkes connection
  • Influence and impact of Federation on the social, cultural and economic life of Tenterfield
  • Emergence of the School of Arts, its various roles and changing function.
