  • Fort Cornwallis

    Named after the Governor General in Bengal, Charles Cornwallis, Fort Cornwallis is one of the most well-known landmarks in Penang. The fortress’ 10-feet walls are laid out in the shape of a star, and within those walls, some of the original structures built over a century ago can still be seen – a chapel, some prison cells, ammunition storage area, a harbour light, the original flagstaff and some old bronze cannons, which includes the infamous 17th-century Dutch cannon called ‘Seri Rambai’, believed by the locals to have an encouraging effect on women’s fertility. Popular among visitors, this privately-managed historical attraction is equipped with a tourist information kiosk, a café, and open-air amphitheatre, a history gallery, a souvenir centre and tour guides to show visitors around and provide them with a peek into the fortress’ history.

  • Penang Museum

    A significant landmark listed in the Penang Heritage Trail, the Penang Museum houses permanent exhibits which include photographs, maps, antiques, furniture, documents, paintings and other historical relics showcasing Penang's culture and heritage throughout the years. Among those featured are Fort Cornwallis, the streets of Penang, Penang municipal history, Penang riots, the Japanese occupation, Penang houses of worship and traditional trades. Also included in special rooms are paintings by local artists, the Straits Chinese collection, hand-written scriptures and old Malay weapons such as the keris. The statue of Captain Francis Light greets you outside as you walk into the museum’s grounds.
