Hus Museum in Constance

Sign at Hus Museum in ConstanceThe Hus Museum (Hus-Museum) is situated at the the Hus-Haus which was supposed to be the harbourage of Jan Hus before he got arrested in Constance. During my stay in Constance an historian told me, this is wrong. Jan Hus did probably stay in another building. The Hus Museum is worth a visit anyway.
