Commemorating Bruce Lee's 50th Death Anniversary at the HK Heritage Museum
July 17, 2023
The Hong Kong Heritage Museum (HKHM) is commemorating the 50th anniversary of Bruce Lee's death with a series of activities and programmes beginning on July 12, featuring pop-up displays, movie screenings of his popular films, and a day camp for students to learn about Bruce Lee's legacy and philosophy.
From July 12 to January 1, 2024, visitors can witness some of the finest exhibits, including Bruce Lee's life-size bust, commemorative stamps, and publications about his films and Jeet Kune Do. The display will also feature a 'Bruce Lee's Legacy in the World of Martial Arts' presentation pack.
The HKHM collaborates with the Bruce Lee Foundation to present the five-day Camp Bruce Lee Hong Kong 2023. The camp aims to enable 30 primary school students to learn about Bruce Lee's legacy and philosophy through various fun activities, including workshops on storytelling, drama, and Chinese tea ceremony.
The museum will screen Bruce Lee's popular films, including 'The Way of the Dragon', 'The Big Boss', and 'Fist of Fury', on July 20 at 1/F Theatre. Also, on July 22, the museum will present a free screening of the movie 'The Kid' (1950), in which Bruce Lee took a leading role for the first time when he was 10 years old.
Apart from the new pop-up display, day camp, and movie screenings, visitors are welcome to visit the 'A Man Beyond the Ordinary: Bruce Lee' exhibition at 2/F Thematic Gallery 6 of the museum.
The exhibition features around 400 exhibits, including Bruce Lee's memorabilia and photos, a large-scale immersive light and sensory installation, and other interactive programmes.
