Russian Federation State Scientific Center A.I. Alikhanov Institute ofTheoretical and Experimental Physics, ul. Bolshaya Cheremushkinskaya 25, Moscow, 117259, Russian Federation

The twenty five years that have passed since the experimental discovery of the first charmed particle have been extremely successful for the physics of charmed particles. In the 30 odd experiments conducted over this period, a large number of states of charmed mesons and baryons have been observed, over a thousand decay channels studied, and lifetimes measured. In the present paper, basic experimental results are reviewed and prospects for the near future are discussed.
