If you attend a kräftskiva (crayfish party) or other festive occasion in Sweden, you’ll likely have snaps, a little shot of alcohol, perhaps akvavit (aquavit). To accompany your snaps, you can sing snapsvisor (drinking songs) which are an important part of the festivities.
Vem tog mitt snapsglas? Who took my shot glass?

ASI’s green initiatives create a sense of place and a connection to nature for the building users while honoring Swedish values of sustainably built environments, dating back to the 15th century.
Joining the Turnblad Mansion on ASI’s campus is the Nelson Cultural Center, an environmentally-friendly structure that received a LEED® Gold-certification when it was completed in 2012. ASI was the first museum in Minnesota to earn this designation which award trumpets the holistic approach to sustainability that guided the building’s design process from conceptual thinking through construction.
The Nelson Cultural Center’s green roof provides insulation for the building and reduces storm water runoff.
Careful planning and positioning and extensive use of windows provides abundant natural light and connects building occupants to the site and the outdoors. Lighting controls keep the lights off when they are not needed.
A geothermal heating and cooling system, made up of 96 wells each 250 feet deep, provides energy for the Nelson Cultural Center.
ASI is proud to be a designated “Urban Apiary Host” by The Beez Kneez, a Twin Cities honeybee education organization. There are two active bee hives located on campus.
