The museum has the following sections:
a room where Mustafa Kemal Atatürk’s photographs taken in various provinces and Malatya during his domestic trips were exhibited, a simulated room where he met the notables of the city during his Malatya visit, an exhibition hall in memory of the martyrs who were killed in World War I, and a room where photos of Atatürk’s decease are exhibited. There is also a hall with hand-woven carpets and various ethnographic works. The foundations of the building were laid in 1926. Used as a Turkish Hearth during its first years, the building was used as the provincial center of the Republican People’s Party and a People’s House. It was an annex of Malatya High School for a period, and now it serves as the Atatürk’s Memorial House and Ethnography Museum. Made of neat cut stone, the historical building was designed as a basement and a ground floor with the influences of the first national architectural movement. It is one of the rare buildings built with the influences of the first national architectural movement in Malatya.
