I was recommended by some friends to visit the Mansion. It's interesting and certainly worthwhile, the entry fee is quite affordable and you can easily spend over an hour in the Mansion. The guide was very knowledgeable and made the visit very entertaining.

We were not planning to visit but it was recommended by the driver who toured us around georgetown. Worth visiting and very educational for first timers visiting Penang. The tour guide walked us through the place which was educational and entertaining.
