Who Let Who Let
the Dogs Out Out

New Press: Noisey (Vice)The Stranger, AS220, Philly.com


"...strange and thoroughly amazing..." - hyperallergic



"Artist Ben Sisto is the world's leading expert on "Who Let the Dogs Out," as evidenced by his collection of over 250 pieces of memorabilia and artifacts. In this multimedia presentation, he tells the stories of musicians, lawyers and fans from all around the world, shining a light on the origins of that catchy pop abomination you're ashamed you can't stop yourself from singing along to."

- Time Out New York

"Long have we petitioned the universe and sports stadiums, and now that quest will finally be laid bare for archivists to, hopefully, piece together an answer..." - A.V. Club

Museum of Who Let Who Let the Dogs Out Out

The Museum of Who Let Who Let the Dogs Out Out contains over 250 LPs, CD, tapes, magazines, shirts, toys and other ephemera related to artist Ben Sisto's investigations into the origins of a well-known musical hook.

The collection is home to objects from the US, UK, Australia, Brazil, Germany, Japan and other places, acquired over a period of approximately 7 years.

Museum highlights include a promotional flying disc available only via a short-lived television ad, rare primary source documents and the crowd-favorite, dancing stuffed animals.


The museum is not currently on public view, but is always open to new opportunities. Feel free to get in touch to learn more.
