These sites are primarily related to particle physics.  Many offer good web-based introductions to the theory and the experiments. 

The Particle Adventure
http://wwwpdg.cern.ch/pdg/particleadventure/index.html
This is the easiest to use version of an award-winning interactive web tour of particle physics.
Build an Atom with your Computer
 http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/aso/tryit/atom/
Highly recommended. Comes with worksheet.
ALEPH events for Schools.
http://iphlehramt.physik.uni-mainz.de/lehrsystem/
Interactive work using genuine ALEPH events. 
In German.
Sub-Atomics: A guide to intelligent-sounding physics lingo! 
http://members.aol.com/laninaia01/subatomics.html
An interesting (and well done!) qualitative summary of particle physics created by a student.
Particle Physics Introduction by Fermi Lab 
http://www.fnal.gov/pub/hep_descript.html
 
Fermilab Education Office
http://www-ed.fnal.gov/
Many links, on-line activities, and resources for educators
Education Programs and Resources
http://www-ed.fnal.gov/talks/cern99/
This is the web-linked talk given to the CERN teachers by Liz Quigg of FermiLab.  Under web-based resources there are a number of son-line simulations at Fermilab and elsewhere.  Everything she spoke about is here.
An Introduction to Particle Physics 
http://hepwww.rl.ac.uk/Pub/Phil/contents.html
A text-based introduction to particle physics from the Rutherford Lab (UK)
SLAC's Virtual Visitor Center
http://www2.slac.stanford.edu/vvc/home.html
A very nice site with explanatory sections on the linear accelerator, particle physic theory, detectors, history and more. 
Particle Physics in the UK
http://hepweb.rl.ac.uk/ppUK/
Connected to CERN Outreach, a good jumpsite for particle physics, not only for the UK.  Includes resources for schools.
Boston University's ATLAS Education Website
http://physics.bu.edu/ATLAS/index.html
An excellent site for introductions to particle physics, ATLAS, etc.  Includes wonderful EventMaker simulation of particle collisions.
A Multimedia Tour through Particle Physics 
http://www.physik.uni-erlangen.de/didaktik/grundl_d_TPh/Titelseite.html
A nice site in German, with good pictures.
World Wide Web Interactive Real Event Display
http://vanh.physto.se/~hoc/ (Stockholm mirror site)
Hands on CERN.Although still being perfected, this is a project we have been shown at CERN.  It allows students to analyze real detector data.  A CD-ROM is in the works.
Ba-Bar and the Missing Antimatter
 http://www.compsoc.man.ac.uk/~heth/babar/index.html
Why is there more matter than antimatter? Easy to understand site on CP symmetry violation experiment.
