Nice Web Sites:

The Quantum Mechanicssection of the physics virtual bookshelf, which lists a wealth of educationalresources on quantum mechanics.

Visual Quantum MechanicsThe software link gives a collection of animations showing various aspects of quantum mechanics.

Motion in a potentialshows movies of quantum mechanical motion under the influence of forces.

Visual quantum mechanics(different from the above) gives a semi-technical description of conventional quantum mechanics.

A Translation of the famous Schroedinger's Cat paperwhere the discussion of the cat appears at the end of section 5.

http://www.aip.org/history/is the physics history web site of the American Institute of Physics, and pointsto many other physics-oriented web sites around the world.
