Taking part in cultural life in Frankfurt
If you are a registrated refugee at Frankfurt and are receiving financial help from the district (city), you can get the "culture card" (in German: Kulturpass).
You should have an official paper from the commune of Frankfurt that says you get "Leistungen nach dem Asylbewerberleistungsgesetz" - please ask the local helpers in your refugee home if this applies to you.
The culture card costs €1.00 (children up to 12 years €0.50) and is valid for one year. With this card the entry fees are drastically educed in many museums and for a lot of other cultural events like theatre, concerts and so on in Frankfurt.
In most of the museums they charge only €1.00 (children half proce) as the entry fee and theatres sell remaining tickets for a show for €1.00 to €3.00 at the box office.
(Information for all refugees who speak English: there is an English Theatre in Frankfurt - they charge only €1.00 for remaining tickets if you have a culture card [Kulturpass]). In some venues entry is even free for people with the culture card "Kulturpass".
For more information look here: http://www.kulturpass.net/ (Please ask locals to help you to get it.)
Every last Saturday in a month several museums in Frankfurt offer free entry to everyone. Some of them have an extra programme for children and families on this day. More information here: http://frankfurt-on-foot-cityguide.blogspot.de/2010/01/satourday-free-museum-entrance-in.html
