Dark matter makes up 80% of the matter in our Universe, but we have yet to learn its identity. Astrophysical probes are becoming powerful enough to inform us on some of its fundamental properties and a wide array of experiments are probing its non-gravitational interactions with ordinary matter. In this talk, I will review the astrophysical evidence for dark matter and give a broad overview of current and future direct and indirect detection experiments, as well as collider probes. I will also discuss some of the hints for dark matter at currently running experiments.
