Split Science Museum and Zoo (Croatian: Prirodoslovni muzej i zoološki vrt grada Splita) is one of the smallest zoos in the world at only 0.65-hectare (1.6-acre). It is located on mount Marjan, in Split, Croatia. The Science museum is an old house.

History

In 2006, after years of protests by animal rights groups, Split Zoo decided to relocate all of their exotic animals and stop accepting new animals. Nevertheless, the miserable situation for the animals has not changed and animal protection groups in Croatia receive countless complaints by shocked tourists on a regular basis. In 2014 the zoo announced that it will be closing and relocating all animals.

The director is Nediljko Ževrnja.
