The purpose of this research was to devise an assessment tool to effectively capture the nature of visitors' learning experiences with live animal exhibits in zoos and aquaria. A comprehensive learning framework was developed and field-tested with a total of 900 visitor. The resulting framework provides researchers and practitioners in zoos and aquaria with a valuable tool to assess the learning impact of exhibits through observable behavioural indicators.
