There is strong experimental evidence that supports the idea that most of the matter in the universe is made up of yet undetected particles. The turn on of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN near Geneva in 2008 will provide us with the best opportunity yet to produce and study these particles in the laboratory. I will review the observational evidence for Dark Matter and describe how particle physics will look for Dark Matter particles at the LHC.
