Ziya Gökalp Museum is a house museum dedicated to Ziya Gökalp in Diyarbakır, Turkey. The museum is located in the historic Sur district of Diyarbakır. It is close to Grand Mosque and the Cahit Sıtkı Tarancı Museum. Ziya Gökalp was one of the most important intellectuals and spokesmen of the Turkish nationalist movement. The museum building is the house, where he was born and grew up in. The building was constructed in 1808. In 1953, the house was bought by the Ministry of Culture, and it was opened as a house museum on 23 March 1956. The building has a ground floor and an upper floor. The basalt-stone house is composed of three sections around a courtyard. Unlike other Diyarbakır historical houses, the house pool is placed in the iwan rather than in the courtyard.
