The show is amazing, unfortunately this was the last year. I don't know why they will stop, but if someone want to see a little bit, there are some good videos on youtube

Was really impressed with the way Canadian history is conveyed through a light show projected on the buildings. Some of the effects are particularly stunning - taking you on the journey. Soundtrack and artistry exceeded expectations. What a wonderful free event to share with family, friends, and visitors. Might be a bit long for some, particularly when conditions aren't ideal...

Fantastic show - best in good weather, of course. It's well worth making special effort to see. Take lawn chairs or a blanket.

I've had the pleasure of seeing MosAika twice. Once with a group of locals and once with a friend from out of town. Both had a great time! This is A fantastic opportunity to learn more about Canada, its people and it's history. Not to mention it's a free event!

This is one attraction you should not miss whether you're visiting or live in Ottawa. Not only is it free but very impressive. It makes you proud to be a Canadian. Bring lawn chairs and a blanket. Bring your whole family. We had adults and kids of all ages and it was the only thing that the kids remembered from... More

Mind blowing. Very interesting, historically informative and beautiful. You should bring your own chairs and go half an hour or more earlier if you want to sit otherwise you will be standing for a whole half hour.

A real show, vibrant and also full of information of the Canadian history. We saw it in summer 2013 and it was a real pleasure. Take a mini chair of you don't want to be on the floor ;) I recommend it!!

This light show offers a wonderful portrayal of the history of Canada, shown through an outdoor innovative, technological laser light show, that shines images on the Parliament building. Bring your lawn chairs or a blanket, and check the weather forecast in advance for rain. Arrive about half an hour before starting time, to find a patch of lawn to sit... More

Such an amazing light show. Matches Disney's quality. A neat education on Canada to boot! You honestly can't beat it for free.
