The Roger Miller Museum is a museum dedicated to the life and career of entertainer Roger Miller. It is located on historic U.S. Route 66 in downtown Erick, Oklahoma, Miller's home town.

The 3,000 square feet (280 m2) Roger Miller Museum opened at the corner of U.S. 66 (Roger Miller Boulevard) and Oklahoma 30 (Sheb Wooley Avenue) in 2004[1] in a former 1929 café[2] and drugstore building.[3][4]

On display are many artifacts of Miller's career including musical instruments, rare photos, and Miller's stage costumes. Several times a year the museum conducts fundraising events in the local area which include an annual street festival and concert in late October.
