Never before had I seen so many people at parliament hill, and every one of them silent as the show played. Its a show that gave me goosebumps to watch and I learnt a lot as well. Highly recommended.

There is nothing like this anywhere else and you should really try to take it in when in the nation Capital. Not many people to deal with at night which is a nice Change from the crowds in the day.

I took my cousin visiting from England to see MosAika and we both loved it. I even got a bit teared up at the end with pride hearing the anthem!

This was the last year of the MosAika presentation. It's just not marketed well enough to locals because my friends had never heard of it when I mentioned I saw it. Everyone I spoke to at MosAika was a tourist. Looking forward to next year's newly designed presentation.

The sound and light show is performed against the backdrop of the Parliamentary Centre Block. It was performed nightly from May to September ans was an awe inspiring show. It will be hard to be replaced but I for one cannot wait to see what they come up with.

This is a must for visitors and locals in Ottawa. It is an interesting sound and light show that makes us proud to be Canadian...and want to be Canadian if you are not. It is great for a family to visit and it is free. Just hope for mild weather and a light snowfall...it's beautiful.

Canadian history in a nutshell, wonderful narration, good lighting and sounds effects. Previous versions, included more tricks ( smoke , and fog, ....etc) but this is a must see on a beautiful day of summer or September.
