The Samara Regional Museum is one of the oldest museums in the Volga museum, although the main building is relatively new - it was built in 1989 and has 2500 sq metres of exhibition space. It's rather more modern than most regional museums and has exhibitions that date from pre-historic (including some dinosaur-like skeletons) through to the space age (there's a pretty cool space capsule in the entrance hall). Among some of the things to see are typical animals of the region, a cabinet full of various (clothing) irons through the ages (!), models of typical people of the region and an absolutely huge mural of Lenin's head. It wasn't my favourite thing to do in Samara but some parts of it were pretty interesting and it wasn't expensive.
