E.g: I need to know when was the last time a pendrive was mounted. Where could I see that? The pendrive has e.g.: FAT32, EXT3 filesystem.

ext3 stores the last mount time and can be retrieved with:

dumpe2fs -h /dev/node

I'm not sure that FAT stores this information.

dumpe2fs same as tune2fs can not retrieve mount time for NTFS and FAT filesystems. – Secko Nov 23 '13 at 21:21
