Jackie Chan spent over SGD$8 million to construct a personal film museum in Shanghai.

After five years of planning it has been completed finally and will open at the end of the year.

Jackie Chan posted many museum photos recently, reports Mingpao.

Inside are many antique lanterns and a Battle of Harmony Jackie Chan sculpture.

He even discussed the earlier "antique lantern" lighting ceremony and sculpture unveiling.

"The antique lanterns were from a Shanghai French Concession mansion that I accidentally discovered while making RUSH HOUR 3 in 1997.

"I bought all 17 lanterns and placed them in my Hong Kong home. They have been there for 15 years," said Jackie.

For the museum he moved them to Shanghai to be restored. As for the Battle of Harmony sculpture, a pair of U.S. artists spent over 10 years to complete it.

In the sculpture Jackie Chan was practicing drunken fists. Actually the entire work was completed with his various gestures like the five shaped fist, peace and love.

The museum will display collections from Jackie Chan's years in film.
