Internationally renowned megastar Bruce Lee (1940–1973) was born Lee Jun-fon, in the United States. Educated in Hong Kong and the US, he founded the Jun Fan Gung Fu Institute in the US and introduced Chinese kung fu to the American public through television and film. In 1971, he returned to Hong Kong and made five films, which became classics. He combined various schools of martial arts to create what is known as his Jeet Kune Do. Behind the spotlight, the megastar loved his family and enjoyed reading. He expressed his emotions and ideas in letters and other types of writing. Through daily training and reflection, he went beyond his limits and became a global legend.
In collaboration with the Bruce Lee Foundation, the Hong Kong Heritage Museum presents some 400 invaluable items of Bruce Lee memorabilia in the exhibition titled "A Man Beyond the Ordinary: Bruce Lee", with large-scale multimedia and interactive programmes. His films, martial arts achievements and life story show how Lee Jun-fon's perseverance gave birth to the legend that is Bruce Lee.
