m.a.x museo, a member of ICOM (International Council of Museums), was opened in 2005 on the initiative of the Max Huber-Kono foundation, based in Chiasso, and has been a public institution of the municipality of Chiasso since 2010. The museum has set itself the aim of spreading understanding of contemporary graphic arts, design, photography and visual communication by building bridges between the past and the new generations.

m.a.x museo is located next to Cinema Teatro and Spazio Officina, enabling direct contact between the two most important cultural buildings in this border town. The new, important Centro Culturale Chiasso is taking shape thanks to exhibitions and a theatre programme of international importance.
