Bruce Lee’s Home May Be Turned Into Museum

It looks like Bruce Lee may be getting his own Graceland! We get wind of this glorious news from the dragon caves of Yahoo:

A developer who owns Bruce Lee’s old home in Hong Kong lobbied the government Thursday to turn the property into a museum. Yu Pang-lin met Thursday with Hong Kong’s commerce and economic development secretary about his plans for the two-story house, currently used as an hourly motel.

The 86-year-old developer-turned-philanthropist had put the property on sale to raise money for victims of the recent earthquake in China’s Sichuan province, but changed his mind after fans of the late martial-arts star expressed worries about the building’s possible destruction.

He’s willing to donate the property, where Lee lived in 1972 and ‘73, and wants the Hong Kong government to set up a trust that will hold the property and spearhead efforts to plan and raise funds for the museum, said Michael Tien, a local politician who attended Thursday’s meeting.
