This virtual museum of Newton at www.newton.org.uk includes biographical information but mainly focuses on Newton's daily life. The site's webmaster Andrew McNab includes photos of Newton's childhood home, a chronology, quotes, and the book Newton: The Man, by Richard De Villamil (1931). The site also includes links to other sites on Newton's contributions to mathematics, optics, physics, and more.
