The Higgs boson is a tool for exploration as much as a standalone topic of investigation. While the Higgs is very much Standard Model-like, it is at the heart of most Beyond the Standard Model scenarios, mostly because of the still unanswered question of naturalness. I shall browse through a selection of new physics models and present their main signatures one could expect at
colliders. Finally, I shall mention some complementary information that can be gleaned beyond colliders, either from precision measurements in atomic physics, or for the observation of rare/forbidden decays or simply by staring at the Moon.
