Despite the amazing success of the Standard Model of particle physics, its glaring omissions clearly indicate the existence of a more fundamental theory, dubbed "new physics". Searching for new, long-lived particles is a particularly sensitive way to probe new physics in an interesting region of phase space. I will describe the physics of long-lived particles, and discuss recent ideas and opportunities in existing and future experiments.
