In addition there exist more discount cards for tourists, which are only profitable for students under certain conditions.

Barcelona Card

You are allowed to use all means of public transportation unrestricted with the Barcelona card; besides you are guaranteed 100 discounts and free entrances for museums, leisure facilities, clubs, shops, restaurants and events. It is possible to buy a ticket for 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 days and it costs 17 € per person / per day and 30 € for 5 days.

You can buy this card online at:
http://barcelona.nethotels.com/barcelonaturisme/english/ticket_venue_page.htm?IDVenue=1199&ignore_left=1;
but you can also get the Barcelona card in various tourist information offices.

More information (tarifs, points of sale, discounts: where and how much) about the Barcelona Card at following link:
http://www.barcelonaturisme.com

In my opinion the Barcelona Card is only profitable if you practice “hardcore sightseeing” in order to use all the discounts and free entrances. Students already get discounts on entrance fees of museums and it is not necessary to do all sightseeing in one or two days if you are a student in Barcelona, as you have plenty of time.


Articket

This initiative was founded by 6 of the most important arts centres in Barcelona. You can visit following 6 museums for 17 €: Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya (MNAC), Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA), Fundació Joan Miró, Fundació Antoni Tàpies, Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB) und Centre Cultural Caixa de Catalunya, La Pedrera. You can buy tickets, which are valid for 3 months, directly at the museums and at Telentrada.com:

All in all you pay around 27.50 € as a student visiting all museums. So you can save 10 € with this card and have also 3 months time to visit all the museums.
