We discuss the current status of WIMP (Weakly Interacting Massive Particle) Dark Matter from both a theoretical and an experimental viewpoint. We comment in particular direct searches for WIMP-nucleus scattering, indirect searches for WIMP annihilation in the Universe, and collider searches. In the second part of the talk, we comment on several alternatives to WIMP dark matter, such as sterile neutrinos, or primordial black holes.
