Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) are one of the best motivated elementary particle candidates for dark matter. WIMPs could be detected via their scattering off matter, in so-called direct detection experiments. During the past decade, the sensitivity of such experiments has improved by three to four orders of magnitude, but solid evidence for their existence is yet to come. In this talk, I will review the recent progress in direct dark matter detection experiments and discuss future prospects.
