Myself and my partner both wanted to look around the Ben Youssef Madrasa. We were not disappointed - it was beautiful and for 10 dirham you can't really complain. Beautiful building.

You might need a guide to find it but I reckon this is the best attraction in Marrakech. Once again, tiles & carvings are incredible. Visit the toilets - they're really worth a visit

Depends how young they are, it's architecture, so their interest might wander if you stay too long. Nothing inappropriate inside and well worth the visit.
