Looked up the model in the museum website, its the F8, at one time called the A7.
Definitely provided air superiority to Germany for some period. There was a later version, the Ta 152 that was introduced just before the war ended.
Interesting story on Wikipedia about the Ta 152 and its designer, Kurt Tank:
The Ta 152 H-1, with the Jumo 213 E engine, was among the fastest piston-engined fighters of the war, capable of speeds up to 755 km/h (472 mph) at 13,500 m (41,000 ft, using the GM-1 nitrous oxide boost) and 560 km/h (350 mph) at sea level (using the MW 50 methanol-water boost). To help it attain this speed, it used the MW 50 system mainly for lower altitudes (up to about 10,000 m/32,800 ft) and the GM-1 system for higher altitudes, although both systems could be engaged at the same time. The Ta 152 was one of the first aircraft specifically designed to employ a nitrous oxide power boost system.
Kurt Tank was flying an unarmed Ta 152H in late 1944 to a meeting at the Focke-Wulf plant in Cottbus when he was advised by ground controllers of the presence of two P-51 Mustangs, which were on a course heading directly for Langenhagen airfield. The two Mustangs appeared directly behind Tank and would have otherwise caught him, given the planes difference in airspeed, but he escaped by applying full power and engaging the MW 50 boost. As Hermann reports, "[Tank] quickly pulled away from the Mustangs, which had been closing rapidly, until they were no more than two dots on the horizon."
