I would recommend:

PyOpenGL:  for OpenGL scripting
           requires that you know or are willing to learn OpenGL.
           http://pyopengl.sourceforge.net/
           

VPython:   for easy visualization of physical systems.  Very cool.  Looks good
           for beginners.
           http://virtualphoton.pc.cc.cmu.edu/projects/visual/
           (link seems to not be working at the moment. check google)


You might also want to look at pygame (http://pygame.seul.org) for
producing multimedia animations.  For really heavy duty visualization,
there's also the visualization toolkit (VTK at
http://www.kitware.com/vtk.html) and IBM's Open Data Explorer (OpenDx at
http://www.opendx.org), both of which have python bindings.
