Abstract: Child experts in museums have demonstrated their ability to rehearse well organized dinosaur knowledge in conversation with their parents that distinguishes them from novice children and parents (Palmquist & Crowley, 2007). This study builds on research about parent- child learning conversations and considers the potential opportunities made possible when prior knowledge can be activated in museum exhibitions to support learning conversations that include ecological and evolutionary relationships.
