If you want to learn about the history of Colonial India & some of the early the history of the Chennai area, this was a surprisingly good place to start. You have to read a lot - but if you are going to learn about something, you will generally need to read. For history buffs, it's great. You can walk right throughout the grounds of the Fort plus visit the museum (100Rs) for a great history lesson - I certainly didn't know the Danish were there in the early 1600's as a major player. An intriguing & interesting day. About a 20-30 walk from Fort Chennai station, or just catch a tuk tuk from Fort station.
