If you're deeply into history and culture and have a strong interest in war artefacts, Fort Cornwallis would be on such place to relive the moments. Depending on the interest of a particular person, you may find that your time spent here being highly variable. I've done some visiting here as a student in the past for research purposes and lately, I did another visit after learning that a lot of upgrades, restoration works, excavation finds and information has been put up.
You will never find your time a waste if you plan to come here to pick up a thing or two of the significance of the fort and what interest it used to serve back then during the British days. For visitors who don't mind learning the early days about Penang, this is the perfect place to start before venturing onto the heritage trail. Photography opportunities aplenty here. There's a mock model of a soldier's tent here as well and a lighthouse.
