I was here again this summer and saw the show. It is absolutely amazing, bringing history to life. Whether I bring family to the city or come on my own, I always ensure that I see it.

As long-time Ottawa residents, we finally got around to seeing this show. There was something magical about a big crowd of folks just sitting together on the lawn of Canada's Parliament building enjoying a free summer evening's entertainment. The sound and image quality was excellent. Many parts of the 30 minute presentation dazzled the tech-savvy and jaded members of our... More

Beautiful show, great music even if the central tower was not illuminated due to technical difficulties. Highly recommend the show!

MosAika was fantastic. It was lovely to sit on the grass at Parliament Hill and learn about Canada's history. The colours and graphics were beautiful, as was the music. Fun for the whole family.

Great show, loved the colours and history. But then at the end they had to add in some stuff that was okay, but can we sometimes just get away from political correctness and stick with the history. Very well done despite this. Take lawn chairs, and jacket if evening breezy, as it is open to the elements and can be... More

I got to the parliament building at about 30 minutes before the scheduled time for MosAika, just to get a good spot for the viewing. It was a good move. Went through the entire 30 minutes with enthusiasm, learnt a bit about Canadian history and enjoyed the colorful presentation.

We went in mid-August 2014, during an unusually cold and wet week for Ottawa (50s and low 60s most of the week, off-and-on drizzle). This show starts at between 9 and 10 pm (depending on what time of the summer or fall it is), and lasts about 30 minutes. You probably should get there 15 minutes before the show starts,... More

If you are in Ottawa and the evening weather cooperates MosAika is a must see. Simply make sure you are at Parliament Hill for 10 pm with blanket for sitting on (or lawn chairs if you have them) and relax with friends, colleagues or family for the next 35-40 minutes. A narrative history of Canada is projected onto the Parliament... More

Mosaika is disappointing as it doesn't really reflect Canadian achievement across a broad cultural, social and economic spectrum. Great technology, wasted on self-serving content...
