Hus Museum/John Hus House/Hus Haus
Hus Museum

The John Hus house (Hus-Haus) has been for more than 200 years a place of reverence to the great Church reformer, a follower of John Wyclif and a predecessor of Martin Luther. John (Jan) Hus (about 1370 – 1415) was a leader of the reform movement at the Charles University and a popular preacher in Prague and elsewhere. He was convicted as a heretic by the Council of Constance and burned at stake. His ideas and his death stirred up a revolution in Bohemia. The exhibition provides guidance through his life, deeds and literary work and the events of the following Hussite revolution.

Hours: April 1 - September 30: Tuesday - Sunday 11am - 5pm. October 1 - March 31: Tuesday - Sunday 11am - 4pm.

The Hus House is the building in which the Czech reformer Jan Hus for the second Kostanzer Council (1414 -1418) lived. Jan Hus was condemned as a heretic and burned in 1415. In the museum the history of the Hussites and Jan Hus is told and documented. The reformer Jan Hus has nothing to do with the Reformation of Martin Luther. This was only 100 years later. At present, there are many events in Konstanz and city guides on the subject of the 600-year celebration of the council, at the then rulers and religious leaders from all over Europe to Constance came to a common Pope to choose. At that time there were three popes namely.
