Diverse astrophysical and cosmological observations indicate that most of the matter in the Universe is cold, dark and non-baryonic. Weakly Interactive Massive Particles (WIMPs) are generically a good dark matter candidate and particle physics provides us with a well-motivated WIMP candidate in the form of the lightest supersymmetric particle. WIM Ps can be detected indirectly (via the products of their annihilation) or directly (via elastic scattering in underground detectors). They can also be produced at particle colliders like the LHC . After an introduction to dark matter and WIM Ps I will discuss the principles, current status and future prospects of WIMP detection experiments.
