While Chiasso is not usually considered a tourist destination here in Ticino, you will find at least one very special place there that is definitely worth a visit. The m.a.x. museo is only a short walk from the station and can be easily combined with a trip to Como, Milan, the swish Hugo Boss head office in Mendrisio or even the soul-less but addictive shopping centre Fox Town nearby.
Opened in 2005 by Aoi Huber-Kono, widow of the renowned Swiss graphic designer Max Huber, the museum offers inspiration to budding designers or established artists alike. One of those "not-to-be-missed" type places.
