I saw this show two summers ago. It was a really good show that lasted about an hour. It touched on Canada's history and it was fun to enjoy it with friends on the front lawn of the Parliament buildings on a warm summer evening. I would definitely recommend it and, best of all, it's free!

This is another free presentation on Parliament Hill. The show is educational and provides and excellent history of Canada and its culture...all illuminated on the face of the Parliament Building. If you go pick a warm evening and bring a blanket or something to lay or sit on. Excellent Show!!!

Go to the show with no expectations. It will be a fun and neat surprise. I liked hearing the narrative and learning some history along the way. Kids will love it.

The Mosaika show is a great light show for visitors to Ottawa in the summer. The price is right - FREE! The show is approachable for most ages. We have taken visitors from NZ and Germany, and combined the show with an evening walk in the Market and along the canal. Don't expect alot of detail or nuance- this is... More

This is a great way to see Parliament after a day of walking around the city. It is such a neat idea to watch this on the parliament buildings. I would recommend going with a chair or be prepared to sit on the grass.

Typically.. we didn't see MosAika until we have visitors from far away. We were wondering what to do one evening that didn't result in another expensive outing. We decided to tote our visitors and a couple of blankets to see MosAika. I figured, what's the worst that can happen... a pleasant evening out in the fresh air. I'm not sure... More

The wonderful spectacle of seeing the history of this great country unfold in front of you, right there on parliament buildings...The sounds, the lights, the whole experience is magical! Amazing free entertainment, that is great for all age groups. Suggest you bring a lawn chair and /or picnic blanket. A picnic on the hill, with this as a backdrop is... More
