Once we went to The Sixth Floor, the JFK Museum, we love to go to Dealey Plaza. Just sat near the pool to look around.. people, birds, Mr Dealey statue.. Also, imagine or re create how things happened. It was a relaxing experience.

You could certainly walk the plaza in the evening as it is an open public area, you just couldn't visit the excellent museum at the book depository.
