LHCb is a dedicated experiment for the study of b-hadrons, exploiting the copious production of beauty mesons and baryons in proton-proton collisions at the CERN LHC. The LHCb detector was already able to take data in September 2008 and now is being commissioned for the new LHC start-up in September 2009. Cosmic rays and single beam interactions data are in use for a study of the detectors performances and for their space and time alignment. Improvements in each subdetector are being performed; moreover the last of the muon stations is being installed. Full experiment system tests have shown the readiness of LHCb from the data taking to their processing. Here the current status of the LHCb experiment commissioning is presented.
